This section provides information about the role of Reading Recovery Teachers, Tutors and Trainers.
The series of Reading Recovery lessons lasts for up to 20 weeks, or until the student has developed effective strategies for independent learning, and can participate in classroom literacy activities with minimum help. During a Reading Recovery lesson, the teacher demonstrates and teaches problem-solving strategies and supports the student to develop effective reading and writing processing.
Tutors and Trainers
A Reading Recovery Tutor’s role includes teaching of students, training and monitoring teachers and participating in professional development activities. A Reading Recovery Trainer’s role includes initial and ongoing professional development for Reading Recovery Tutors, coordination of the collection of the end-of-year data and review of relevant research.
