The impact of an intensive program to increase the literacy skills of youth confined to juvenile corrections

Drakeford, W.
Abstract:
This study examined the effect of implementing Corrective Reading with six African American male adolescents in a juvenile corrections facility who were reading well below grade level. Oral reading fluency measures, grade placement level tests, and questionnaires that addressed student attitudes toward reading were administered as pre and posttests. For all students, oral reading fluency rate increased following intervention and grade placement levels increased from half a grade to a full grade. Additionally, a positive change in student attitudes toward reading was reported. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
