Fluency beyond the Primary Grades: Helping Adolescent Struggling Readers
Rasinski, Timothy; Padak, Nancy D.
Voices from the Middle, v13 n1 p34-41 Sep 2005
The authors outline a research study that explores the plight of students who direct so much effort into decoding that comprehension suffers. They make the case that difficulties in reading for older readers (intermediate, middle, and high school) could be due to reading fluency difficulties, and they offer strategies for helping these students improve comprehension, overall reading achievement, and content-area knowledge.
