Zugel, Kevin M.
The purpose of this report was to examine the effects reading fluency has on reading comprehension. The analysis was done through a synthesis of recent literature on the topic. Research shows improvement in reading fluency does improve reading comprehension and suggests reading development similarities for all readers. This consistency in comprehension development may be valuable information for teachers at all grade levels facing the reading development challenges in the classroom. The literature supports further research into reading comprehension, including reading fluency and strategies that effectively and efficiently improve fluency and ultimately comprehension.
