A single-subject experimental design of one Reading Recov􀀲ry child's change over time in writing. In this thesis I will observe one of my first round Reading Recovery students writing over a twenty-week period. After the fifth, tenth, fifteenth and twentieth week intervals the child's writing will be examined against a rubric to observe the changes in vocabulary/spelling, sentence structure, directional principles and language quality. The scores of each section will be examined to see if a change in the child's writing has occurred.
