Video Self-Modeling as a Tool for Improving Oral Reading Fluency and Self-Confidence.
Greenberg, Debbie; Buggey, Tom; Bond, Carole L.
Oral reading fluency is an important component of the reading process. Many students develop negative attitudes about reading due to self-consciousness of their below average oral reading skills. In this study, video self-modeling was used with three third-grade students who were below grade level in reading. The self-modeling procedure allowed the students to view themselves succeeding in oral reading. A multiple baseline, single subject design, across students was utilized to evaluate whether the method would affect oral reading fluency and students' perceptions of self as readers. Qualitative information was collected. All participants in the study made gains in oral reading fluency and in their perceptions of self as readers. Contains 35 references, and a table and a figure of data. (Author/RS)
