Research and Practice: Making a Place for Fluency Instruction in the Regular Reading Curriculum.
Rasinski, Timothy V.; Zutell, Jerome B.
Although research efforts into improving reading fluency and general reading performance through fluency training have enjoyed a resurgence in recent years, basal reading approaches still dominate reading instruction, and fluency is rarely viewed as an important component of the instructional package. Several models of reading fluency instruction make fluency an integral part of the regular reading curriculum. For example, the Oral Recitation Lesson incorporates aspects of repeated readings, teacher modeling of fluent oral reading, and standards for student mastery of the text. Other recently developed curriculum models for fluency capitalize on the notion of pairing students into cooperative dyads and having them work together in supporting each other's growth in fluency and general reading proficiency. Using these models as guides, teachers can begin to incorporate elements of fluency instruction into their classrooms. (Eighteen references are appended.) (MM)
