The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Lucy Laney and the University of Minnesota Summer Reading Research Project.

Cherne, Jessica.

During the summer of 2007, 40 students from Lucey Craft Laney Community School, received 1:1 individualized reading fluency instruction from University of Minnesota graduate students for 30 min per day, 3 times per week (2 hours weekly) for 4 weeks. During the first week of the project, individualized reading assessments were conducted with each participant in the project to identify (a) the student's instructional level in reading, (b) an instructional strategy matched to the student's individual needs in the area of reading fluency, and (c) an error pattern analysis to identify the types of words the student was reading incorrectly. During the subsequent three weeks, each child received individualized reading instruction at his or her instructional level. The intervention consisted of an individualized instructional model, repeated practice reading passages, preview of instructional content, and reward contingent on tracking with finger while reading.
