Seattle school boosts reading scores with Reading Mastery curriculum

This study examined the effect of Reading Mastery (RM) on the reading achievement of elementary students. In an attempt to reduce the racial gap in academic achievement, RM was implemented in the African American Academy for grades k-3 during the 2001-2002 school year. Results indicated that in 2003, the school’s fourth grade students demonstrated the largest gains among Seattle elementary schools with similar low-income student populations. Results from the Washington Assessment of Student Learning (WASL) indicated an increase in the percentage of 4th grade students who met or exceeded state standards in reading from 42% in 2001 to 85% in 2006.
