Direct Instruction helps Native American school change course, improve reading

This study examined the effect of Corrective Reading (CR) on the reading achievement of students in grades 7-9 in one school. Prior to the implementation of CR in 2003, every student had required reading remediation. The Washington Assessment of Student Learning (WASL) was administered yearly to measure students’ reading achievement. Results indicate that by the 2006-2007 school year, only 30% of students required reading remediation. Results from the WASL indicate that the percentage of students in grade 10 that met or exceeded state standards rose from 10% in 2003 to 62% in 2006.
