Effectiveness of Read-Aloud Instruction on Reading and Math Outcomes: Evidence from Northern Nigeria

Type: Research
Year of Publishing: 2018
Keywords: Read-Aloud, Reading, Mathematics, Early Grade
This paper evaluates the net causal effects of Read-Aloud (RA) story lessons on reading and math learning outcomes in 199 second grade classrooms in northern Nigeria. We employ a cluster-randomized controlled trial to assess the efficacy of two types of RAs. The first type uses local language stories, accompanied by vocabulary instruction and comprehension questions. The second follows the same structure, but is math-themed and includes a set of math exercises. The treatments are delivered to students in the treatment schools for 35 minutes weekly over the duration of the school year.
