The Kentucky Read to Achieve grant provides schools with competitive funds to design and implement a reading intervention that addresses the needs of primary students reading at low levels.
The state 2004 regulations says: "Reading intervention program means short-term, intensive instruction in the essential skills necessary to read proficiently that are provided to a student by a highly trained teacher. This instruction may be conducted one-to-one or in small groups, shall be research-based, reliable, and replicable, and shall be based on the ongoing assessment of individual student needs."
Reading Recovery is an early intervention that helps young, struggling readers to develop effective strategies for reading and writing. It also provides children with the motivation to reach the average levels of classroom literacy performance. Reading Recovery is designed as follows:
- Intensive, short-term intervention
- One-to-one instruction by highly-trained teacher
- Year-long literacy coursework at university level
- Research-based intervention that monitors individual students
- Ongoing assessment through Clay's Observation Survey
- Literacy instruction includes Reading First Five Essential Components: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, fluency, and comprehension
- Daily writing and motivation instruction related to brain research
