Reading Gains with Intensive Summer Camp

Feb 28, 2022
 
 

Traditional In-person Summer School 

Laurens County schools in Dublin, GA implemented an intensive, in-person summer reading camp. During the 2019 Summer School, Laurens County implemented Lindamood-Bell® instruction to address the specific needs of this student population. Data is available on 21 students who received an average of 60.7 hours of primarily Seeing Stars instruction to develop symbol imagery for reading. The instruction was delivered by Laurens County teachers who received professional development in the programs. Student gains were measured with a battery of reading assessments.

On average, Seeing Stars students achieved significant improvements in reading. Their pre to post-test results were statistically significant on nearly all measures. The results of this study illustrate that Lindamood-Bell instruction in the Seeing Stars program leads to improved reading, which is essential to achieving success with school curricula.

PROFILE:

Number of Students: 21

Average Age: 9.5

Average Hours of Instruction: 60.7

Lindamood-Bell Programs Implemented: Seeing Stars®

Outcome Measures:

• Symbol Imagery Test

• Woodcock Reading Mastery Test-3rd (word attack)

• Wide Range Achievement Test-4th (reading and spelling)

• Gray Oral Reading Tests-4th (rate, accuracy, fluency, and comprehension)

 

Online Summer Camp 

Many schools are delivering online instruction to struggling readers. Unfortunately, there is a lack of research on the impact of online small-group reading intervention, leaving educators without an evidence-based model. Results from an online summer reading camp demonstrate a promising model to replicate.

Over four weeks in the summer of 2020, Lindamood-Bell provided job-embedded PD to a district implementing small-group instruction using the Seeing Stars® program. The district targeted 100 students performing in the lowest quartile on the MAP assessment to receive the daily intensive intervention.  The instruction was delivered by 35 Fort Smith Public Schools teachers who received professional development in the program authored by LindamoodBell’s founders. 

Watch this dynamic online small-group instruction in action.

 

 

A battery of nationally normed reading assessments measured student gains. Data is available on 14 students receiving an average of 37 hours of instruction. Students made substantial gains in symbol imagery, word attack, and word recognition, skills necessary for establishing independent readers. These gains correlate to nearly a year’s worth of age and grade level growth.
