What Is Reading Recovery®? Reading Recovery® is a highly effective short-term literacy intervention for the lowest achieving grade 1 students. The aim is to bring the previously lowest achieving students in literacy learning to a level in reading and writing where they are able to engage in classroom instruction. Reading Recovery students receive daily 30 minute 1:1 individually designed lessons delivered by a specially trained Reading Recovery teacher. This series of lessons is supplementary to ongoing effective classroom instruction. Reading Recovery® was developed in New Zealand by Dr. Marie Clay and is now successfully implemented in a variety of educational settings internationally. In order to ensure optimal student outcomes, and to maintain the royalty-free annual site license, York Region District School board adheres to the Standards and Guidelines of The Canadian Institute of Reading Recovery®.
