Title: WWC Quick Review of the Report on Summative Evaluation of the Ready to Learn Initiative
Description: This WWC quick review looks at the report, "Summative Evaluation of the Ready to Learn Initiative." Quick reviews give timely guidance about whether education research in the news meets WWC standards. This study examines whether preschoolers who were exposed to a media-rich literacy curriculum had better early reading skills than preschoolers who were exposed to a media-rich science curriculum. Using a randomized controlled trial, the study included 398 4- and 5-year-olds from low-income households in 47 early childhood centers in New York City and San Francisco.
