BLOG: The Stories We Tell Ourselves: Reading Recovery and the MSV Myth by Jeffery Williams
Jeffery Williams, Reading Recovery Teacher Leader and K-12 Literacy Leader from Solon, Ohio explores the MSV myth that often causes debate among literacy professionals.
How Reading Recovery Helps Your Child Learn
Learning to read is complex, and it is not uncommon for beginning readers to struggle. Research shows that children have individual learning strengths, and schools offer many alternative programs. We know parents are concerned about the challenges that learning difficulties, including dyslexia, appear to create for children learning to read and write. We want to assure you that Reading Recovery is a powerful first-grade intervention for any struggling learner.
This resource shows parents how Reading Recovery's specially trained teachers individually design and deliver lessons to build on the child's strengths.
For School Administrators
"Phonemic awareness is defined as the ability to notice, think about, and work with the individual sounds in spoken words. Phonics instruction teaches children the relationships between the letters (graphemes) of written language and the individual sounds (phonemes) of spoken language."
What's the Fuss About Phonics and Word Study
Pat Scharer's Spring 2019 article from the Journal of Reading Recovery identifies misunderstandings in literature over time and confirms how Reading Recovery teachers provide instruction in phonemic awareness and word analysis and both reading and writing activities of every lesson.
