An Examination of Early Intervention Reading Programs in the Denver Area by Patricia J Hagerty( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study compared and contrasted various early intervention reading programs, examining 12 early intervention programs in 10 school districts within 60 miles of the Denver metropolitan area. Programs selected were considered to be district-wide, had been in place for at least a year, had coordinators who agreed to be interviewed, were designed for students in first and/or second grade in a one-on-one or small group situation, and agreed to let the researchers observe a "typical lesson." Eighteen questions (based on J. Pikulski's "characteristics common to successful early intervention programs") were asked of the coordinators, and for each question, researchers read through the answers and established categories, allowing reporting of much data and generating major themes. Observation showed that most lessons were taught in 30 minutes, were focused, and moved along quickly. Results are discussed according to Pikulski's characteristics. Findings suggest that many of the programs did not depend on "strong, effective programs of regular reading instruction" and that although all coordinators considered reading for meaning as an overall goal, none mentioned fluency as a major goal. Ten recommendations for districts interested in implementing "research-based" early intervention programs resulted from the study. (Includes a list of the school district and the program name and a graph showing the program match with Pikulski's characteristics. Contains 10 references. Appended are interview questions and a lesson observation form.) (nka)
