This paper seeks to explore what effects Reading Recovery has on student learning with special reference to the significance of reading recovery intervention and the various approaches employed by specialist instructors.
Definition of Reading Recovery: Reading Recovery is understood as a supplementary education program for the lowest-achieving first-grade children. For Dr. Marie Clay, reading is “a message-getting, problem-solving activity which increases in power and flexibility the more it is practiced” and “that within the directional constraints of the printer’s cue, language and visual perception responses are purposefully directed by the reader in some integrated way to the problem of extracting meaning from cues in a text, in sequence, so that the reader brings a maximum of understanding to the author’s message” (Clay, 1991, p. 6). As the quotation makes it clear, the first grade learner should be trained to acquire the message behind the reading process and it is the duty of the instructor to identify the stumbling blocks before the learner and to help him for problem solution.
Goal and specifics of Reading Recovery: According to Wilson and Daviss, “the goal of Reading Recovery is to dramatically reduce the number of first-grade students who have extreme difficulty learning to read and write and to reduce the cost of these learners to educational systems” (Reading Recovery: Basic Facts 2010). For this, it is essential that the instructors identify the right lowest-achieving first graders and entrust them to a specially trained Reading Recovery teacher who is able to build their confidence level and enable them to work independently in the regular classroom. The selected students are offered a half-hour lesson each school day for 12 to 20 weeks with a specially trained Reading Recovery teacher and their lessons are discontinued as soon as the teacher feels

The people with learning disabilities are not able to learn as quickly as normal people do. There are various forms of learning disabilities, which include concentration or focus disability, perception disability, and many other forms. Let us discuss some of the scholarly journal articles related to reading programs for learning disabled children in order to find out how reading programs can be used to improve the learning abilities of the children.
However, there are many people, educators and parents alike, that feel attempting to make smaller class sizes requires more than what the outcome will present. By shrinking the sizes of classes, opponents claim that the measures and risks to do so greatly outweigh the results, therefore having the efforts be done in vain.
Although this approach is unique and exquisite, it defies the status quo of testing that has plagued the educational system in the United States. This paper will define the key theory usage of rubric that is the focal point in the hybrid-problem based learning system that has tremendous benefits for any academic center.
Other than this, the paper discusses the effects of genetic achievement on boys and girls. Introduction In academic institutes, the faculty usually employ two types of learning techniques to teach the students. One of them is the meaningful learning, while the other is rote learning.
Upgrading the Educational System Education is a dynamic discipline that keeps evolving in meeting the needs of learners. As school leaders, principals should be vigilant in keeping up with new trends but at the same time, discerning of which ones to adopt in their schools.
The constantly renewing technologies are also having an impact on those people who were formally marginalized because of their physical or mental circumstances. For instance, people who are blind are now enabled to read using text-to-speech technology; deaf individuals gain the capability to communicate using chat programs; and people who are disabled from the use of their hands or arms particularly in communicating and writing are now using dictation software (Fichten, et al.
this chapter traces whether or not there is a relationship between rubrics that define clear and explicit criteria and the performance of students on their art projects, with the end in view of answering the research question posed at the start of this action research : “Will
Study outcomes confirms that students who engage in more physical exercises have lower level of stress compared to those who engage in less physical activities. Stress is highly reduced when students exercise together
