dc.description.abstractThis study examines the effects of focused fluency practice on reading fluency, motivation, and interest in reading using a variety of research based strategies designed to improve fluency in struggling students. The twelve-week study looks at six third grade students with low achievement in reading. Multiple assessments and an assortment of methods included: repeated reading strategies, Reader’s Theatre, Quick Reads, humorous literature, and reading for a reason. Rationale for each strategy is given and individual student progress is profiled to show the effectiveness of using a variety of methods to improve reading fluency. Results found repeated readings of independent and instructional level texts to improve reading rates, error and self-correction rates in students with slow reading acquisition. The importance of reading motivation is highlighted using information from pre and post reading surveys.en
