How does Reading Recovery program effect the ability and attitudes of the participating students? In this explanatory study, eight students, participating in an intervention program modeled after Reading Recovery, were examined based on skills and attitudes. All but one student showed marked improvement in attitude toward reading and writing by the end of the study. All students showed some growth in skill level, as well the study was limited in scope as well as in implementation of the Reading Recovery Program. On an individual level, Reading Recovery was successful in improving both skill and attitude of students in need of intervention.
