Effects of a short-term auxiliary reading program on the reading skills of incarcerated youth

Malmgren, K.; Leone, P.
Abstract:
This study examined the effectiveness of an intensive six-week summer program that used Corrective Reading with incarcerated adolescents who were reading well below grade level. All participants were African American, and many were identified as having a disability. Statistically significant gains from pretest to posttest were demonstrated on measures of reading rate, accuracy, and combined rate and accuracy.
