Reading fluency: repeated reading paired with audio passage practice
The research question addressed in this project was, how can repeated reading paired with audio passage practice strengthen the fluency of struggling elementary readers? This study was conducted to determine if using recorded passages as a model would assist struggling readers to improve their reading fluency as they implemented the repeated reading method. A key influence in performing this study was the resource, Increasing Fluency with High Frequency Word Phrases by Timothy Rasinski and Edward Fry (2004). The author explains the routine implemented for using repeated reading along with audio passage practice. Conclusions drawn from this study include: 1) Repeated reading with a model improved struggling readers' accuracy and reading rate. 2) Graphing timed results was a motivator for struggling readers. 3) Recording and evaluating their reading developed awareness in struggling readers of their strengths and needs.
