Speed Does Matter in Reading.
Rasinski, Timothy V.
Reading Teacher, v54 n2 p146-51 Oct 2000
Argues that reading rate should not be ignored, but rather seen as evidence of excessively slow processing of text, and thus as a diagnostic indicator. Describes how excessively slow, disfluent reading leads to less overall reading, to reading frustration, and is associated with poor comprehension. Describes authentic and engaging instructional activities to support reading fluency. (SR)
