Literacy Programs for Children - Kindergarten to Grade 6: Final Report (2008)

This document outlines the research Frontier College carried out between 2006 and 2008 on its programs for children in Kindergarten to Grade 6. The goal was to obtain valid reading assessment data; to identify best practices; and to investigate the impact of these programs.

These programs include reading circles, after-school programs, and in-school tutoring. In total, 12 programs in Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Hamilton, Kingston, Toronto and Halifax were evaluated.

The results showed an overall positive response to the programs, with 91 per cent of the research participants rated them as very good or excellent and 71 per cent of parents noting that their children's schoolwork had improved.

The authors describe the quantitative and qualitative research methods used in the study. They include testimonials from parents and tutors in the programs; discuss the lessons learned from the process; and provide a list of the features of a successful program.
