Description
  • Abstract

    Given the growing number of Latino English learners and the lack of evidence-based educational opportunities they are provided, we investigated the impact of one potentially effective literacy intervention that targets struggling first-grade Spanish-speaking students: Descubriendo La Lectura (DLL). DLL provides first grade Spanish-speaking students one-on-one literacy instruction in their native language and is implemented at an individualized pace for approximately 12 – 20 weeks by trained bilingual teachers. Using a multi-site, multi-cohort, student-level randomized controlled trial, we examined the impact of DLL on both Spanish and English literacy skills. In this paper we report findings from the first of three cohorts of students to participate in the study.
