A comparison of two Direct Instruction reading programs for urban middle school students

Shippen, M.; Houchins, D.; Steventon, C.; Sartor, D.
This study compared the effects of two reading programs, REWARDS and Corrective Reading Decoding, on the reading achievement of struggling middle school students in an urban district. Reading rate, fluency, accuracy, and comprehension were measured. Results indicate that all students, regardless of which program they were assigned to, made significant gains in reading ability.
