Title I & Reading Recovery
What is Title I? What is Reading Recovery?
Title I is the largest federal program for elementary and secondary schools. This program originated in 1965 as Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. It was designed to provide assistance to children needing additional help in the area of reading.
Under Title I, first graders may receive a special program known as Reading Recovery. Reading Recovery is a short-term, supplemental intervention of one to one tutoring for first graders who struggle in the areas of reading and writing. It was developed in New Zealand over 20 years ago and it now operates in 49 states, the District of Columbia, the Department of Defense Dependent Schools, Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia. It's main goal is to reduce the number of first graders that have difficulty learning to read and write.
