"The goal of Reading Recovery is to dramatically reduce the number of learners who have extreme difficulty with literacy learning and the cost of these learners to education systems." -Marie Clay, founder, Reading Recovery
Reading Recovery strives to reduce the number of first-graders struggling to read and write. Reading Recovery achieves this result by focusing on Four Key Areas:
- Powerful Literacy Intervention for Children
- Training and Professional Development for Educators
- Long-Range Plan for School-wide Implementation
- Empirical Support for Reading Recovery
2014-15 is the last year to take advantage of free reading recovery teacher training. All Michigan schools are eligible for this Grant Opportunity, but does have a priority list, should the limited number of spots in the training classes begin to fill.
Priority 1 Schools are schools with a large proportion of English language learner (ELL) students, schools located in rural areas, and schools ranked in the bottom 5% of schools statewide.
Priority 2 Schools are schools identified for Title 1 corrective action or restructuring, and schools or school districts in program improvement.
Priority 3 schools are any other school (public, private, parochial or charter).
