Evaluating the practicability and sustainability of a reading intervention programme, using preservice teachers as trained volunteers

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This paper reports on a study that considered the practicability and sustainability of using preservice teachers as volunteer tutors in a school reading program. The study identified the likely costs and benefits of employing this intervention as part of an early reading program and suggests this kind of intervention can provide a cost effective means to help struggling readers.
