Descubriendo la Lectura (DLL)
The goal of Descubriendo la Lectura (DLL) is to dramaticallyreduce the number of bilingual first-grade students who have extreme difficultylearning to read and write in bilingual classrooms and to reduce the cost ofthese learners to educational systems.Descubriendo la Lectura is a reconstruction of Reading Recovery for Spanish-speaking children. It is a highly effective short-term intervention of one-to-one tutoring for struggling readers in in first-grade classrooms who are receiving classroom instruction in Spanish.
Individual students receive a half-hour lesson each school day for 12 to 20 weeks with a specially trained DLL teacher. As soon as students can read within the average reading performance of their class and demonstrate that they can continue to achieve, their lessons are discontinued, and new students begin individual instruction.Carmen Lipscomb, Descubriendo la Lectura Teacher Leader(940) 369-0639Rosie Mireles, Administrative Assistant(940) 369-0679Denton ISD Professional Development Center1212 Bolivar StreetDenton, TX 76201
