Teachers trained in Reading Recovery know what to do, why it works, and how to adjust their teaching based on a child’s capabilities as well as his needs. Why? Because training in Reading Recovery integrates both theory and practice. Reading Recovery teachers achieve unparalleled results because they are part of a three-level literacy network that includes universities, teacher training sites, and schools. Faculty in 19 universities support teacher training sites in local schools and districts nationwide.

Initial Training for Reading Recovery Teachers Includes:
  • A full academic year of weekly graduate-level course work.
  • Teaching at least four first-grade children daily in individual 30-minute lessons.
  • Keeping complete records on each child as a basis for lessons.
Ongoing professional development is a Reading Recovery requirement.
