Effects of Peer Mediated Instruction on the Oral Reading Fluency Skills of High School Aged Struggling Readers
Josephs, Nikki L.; Jolivette, Kristine
Insights into Learning Disabilities, v13 n1 p39-59 2016
This study examined the effects of peer-mediated oral reading fluency instruction and narrative texts on the reading fluency and comprehension skills of adolescent struggling readers in an alternative high school setting over a period of 10 weeks. The results of this study indicate that peer-mediated repeated reading appears to be the most effective intervention for this population of students. Considerations for future directions of research, along with limitations of the study, are discussed.
