Teachers, children show strong gains in Early Reading First program
Internal and external evaluations of Ready to Learn Providence's third Early Reading First program show that both teachers and children made significant gains on a range of assessments over a period of four years. They also found that the gains made by teachers were not only sustained, but continued to grow after the intervention decreased. ERF 3, which got under way in 2009, provided 14 classrooms in five urban early childhood centers with intensive professional development and mentoring support for three years. A no-cost extension of the grant allowed R2LP to provide a reduced level of technical assistance to four of those centers for a fourth year. The intervention ended in June 2013. (author abstract)
