Integrated Fluency Instruction: Three Approaches for Working with Struggling Readers
Kuhn, Melanie; Rasinski, Timothy; Zimmerman, Belinda
International Electronic Journal of Elementary Education, v7 n1 p71-82 Oct 2014
Effective fluency instruction should focus on reading with understanding, rather than simply reading quickly or expressively. This article outlines three research-based instructional approaches that assist students in developing accurate, automatic word recognition and prosody; at the same time, they ensure learners attend to the text's meaning as they read. All three approaches integrate instructional principles known to improve reading fluency (modeling, scaffolding, repetition, and extensive opportunity for the reading of connected text). They are also clear and easy-to-implement and have proven successful with struggling readers. As a result, these approaches contribute to learners' reading success both within and outside of the classroom.
