Fluency: A Review of Methods

Question: How help student improve fluency in reading?

Answer/Quote: “Research and scholarly literature support several specific methods to promote fluency in reading…. Among these are modeling fluent reading for students, assisted reading and repeated readings. Modeling fluent reading involves listening to a text read fluently by another. Although modeling fluent reading does not involve the student actually reading, it does provide the student with a clear model of what fluent oral reading sounds like. Assisted reading involves a reader reading a text while simultaneously listening to a fluent rendering of the same text. Repeated readings involve the reading of one text until a level of fluency is achieved in the reading.” P. 4.
