The effects of a Corrective Reading program in a middle school

Pfender, R. A.
Abstract:
This study examined the effect of the Corrective Reading (CR) program on the reading comprehension and fluency skills of 11 middle school students. The Jerry Johns Reading Inventory was administered for pre- and posttest measures. Students and teachers were administered questionnaires regarding their opinions on the CR program. Results indicated that all students who participated for the entirety of the intervention (1.5 years) demonstrated gains of two to three grade levels in reading. Additionally, all students demonstrated gains in words read per minute and a reduction in errors. Results from the student questionnaire indicated that on average, the students enjoyed the reading activities, believed it helped them become better readers, and their confidence in reading increased.
