Evaluation of Amazonia Lee Reading Intervention in Peru
This report presents results of the impact evaluation of Amazonía Lee (Amazon Reads), an early-grade reading intervention in Peru delivering in-service teacher training, coaching, and materials, as well as leadership training and non-monetary incentives to improve reading instruction. The study was conducted in two areas (departments) of the Amazon region. In one department, Ucayali, control schools received the usual services provided by the Ministry of Education. In the other department, San Martín, most control schools received a program known as Soporte Pedagógico, a Ministry initiative that offered teacher training and coaching, pedagogical materials, and remedial tutoring.
