Course restricted to Reading Recovery teachers-in-training. This course is the first of two courses of teacher training for the Reading Recovery program. It covers the theoretical foundations of a socio-psycholinguistic early intervention model appropriate to meet the needs of students having confusions with reading and writing conventions and includes on-going practical experiences in a school setting. Observation and specialized procedures are emphasized. The rationales and procedures of a short-term intervention program are discussed and practiced.
