Teaching low performers in upper-primary and lower-secondary to read by direct instruction methods

Maggs, A.; Murdoch, R.
Abstract:
This study examined the effect of the Corrective Reading (CR) program on the reading achievement of elementary and secondary students over seven months. The ages of students at the beginning of the study ranged from nine years, five months to 14 years, nine months. The Neale Analysis of Reading Ability was administered for pre- and posttest measures. Results indicate that students with low reading skills demonstrated significant growth over seven months of instruction. On average, students demonstrated a gain of 15 months in reading comprehension skills. Many of these students had only completed half of the CR lessons. On average, secondary students increased their reading comprehension scores by 25 months. Elementary students who made gains of 12 months in reading accuracy did so in five months of instruction.
