Conducting action research in a rural high school setting using peers as Corrective Reading

Marchand-Martella, N.; Martella, R.; Orlob, M.; Ebey, T.
Abstract:
This study examined the effect of a peer-delivered Corrective Reading program, paired with repeated readings, on reading achievement of rural high school special education students. Additionally, achievement of peer instructors was measured. Results indicate that, overall, students demonstrated stable grade-level performance in vocabulary, and increased one and a half grade levels in comprehension. For students placed in Level B1 only, results indicate a one grade-level increase in vocabulary and stable performance in comprehension.
