National campaign recognizes Reading Recovery as “bright spot” in quality teachingSpearheaded by the Annie E.
Casey Foundation, the national Campaign for Grade-Level Reading is a collaborative effort
by dozens of funders across the nation to draw attention to proven programs
with strong evidence of effectiveness and rigorous data collection. Reading
Recovery is featured as a “Bright Spot” program in the Quality Teaching category. Because
of their deep understanding of literacy learning, Reading Recovery-trained
teachers become the literacy experts for their schools and districts. Trained
teachers typically work for part of the day in Reading Recovery and the other
part day in another role. To learn more download the “Bright Spots” article on Reading Recovery.
