The 2015 Reading Recovery Council of Michigan Institute will be held at the Somerset Inn in Troy, Michigan on November 19 and 20.

The Institute

This Institute is designed for trained and in-training Reading Recovery teachers, teacher leaders, trainers, superintendents, principals, and school board members. The purpose is to provide in-depth study of issues related to Reading Recovery teaching and training.

Developed by New Zealand educator Dr. Marie M. Clay, Reading Recovery is a short-term intervention for children at risk of failing to learn to read and write in the first grade. Children meet daily in a one-to-one session with a specially trained teacher.

The Objective

The goal of Reading Recovery is for children to develop effective reading and writing strategies that will enable them to make accelerated progress and to work successfully within an average classroom setting. The key to the successful implementation of Reading Recovery resides in the multi-tiered training model. Reading Recovery links universities and schools in a collaborative venture to help children while providing a dynamic and unique staff development model.
