Building fluency through repeated readings
The research question addressed in this capstone was, in what ways will implementing repeated readings and sharing these stories with younger students impact the fluency, comprehension, and reading levels of sixth grade special education students? The motivating factor in conducting this capstone was to deliver a new method of instruction for students who have demonstrated limited progress with the traditional model of teaching reading. The students participated in repeated readings and the Read Naturally program. They were also assessed on their fluency while sharing stories with a class of first graders. Overall findings support what research has found: repeated readings increase comprehension and reading levels and improves fluency.
