Literacy Intervention Network
The San Diego County Office of Education now offers a Literacy Intervention Network in partnership with St. Mary's College Kalmanovitz School of Education and University of Arkansas, Little Rock. Teachers must be experts in observing the changes that occur over time in children’s literacy behaviors and be able to make moment-to-moment decisions based on their strengths and areas of need.
Targeted Research Based Intervention Reading Recovery® is a short-term intervention for first graders having difficulty with early reading and writing. Specially trained teachers work individually with students in daily 30-minute lessons lasting 12 to 20 weeks. After a full series of lessons, about 75% of these formerly lowest students reach grade-level standard.
