A study determined if pairing children for reading in first grade would have an effect on their reading achievement. The subjects in this study came from one first grade class in a suburban school district. For 6 weeks, one group of emergent readers was paired with more able readers, while another group of emergent readers in the same class was not paired. The two groups were tested before and after the project, using the Iowa Test of Basic Skills Level 6. The average gain of the paired readers was significantly higher than that of the non-paired readers. (Contains 28 references and 7 tables of data. Two appendixes containing study data are attached.)
