Effective strategies a first grade teacher in a direct instruction setting can use to improve reading fluency in beginning readers
The research question addressed in this project was, what are effective strategies a first grade teacher in a Direct Instruction setting can use to improve reading fluency? The key influence was the Report of the National Reading Panel (2000). This report guided the author in her journey to discover research based strategies that can be used in a one-on-one setting to help beginning readers learning to read in a Direct Instruction setting increase reading fluency. It examines what reading fluency is and why it is important. It also describes Direct Instruction and the Reading Mastery reading curriculum. The author describes the strategies she found that have been proven to be effective and compiled them into a handbook as a resource for a teacher or other adult to use when working with beginning readers on improving reading fluency.
