Reading Teacher, v65 n7 p441-445 Apr 2012
Fluency is a critical skill of adept readers. As listening to read alouds and performing Readers Theatre scripts are two prevalent strategies that can increase students' fluency skills, this article provides suggestions in using these strategies with digital texts through free, online resources. Digital texts can be accessed using a desktop, laptop, or handheld computer such as the iPad and can serve as a unique medium to motivate students to want to read and practice fluency skills and strategies. A table is included for teachers to explore other Web sites that can enhance students' fluency through digital texts.
