Evaluating the Effectiveness of Fluency-Oriented Reading Instruction with Increasing Black and Latino Reading Fluency, as Compared to Asian and White Second-Grade Students' Reading Fluency
Turner, Franklin Dickerson
Journal of Negro Education, v79 n2 p112-124 Spr 2010
This study examined the effectiveness of Fluency-Oriented Reading Instruction (FORI) on improving reading fluency for an ethnically diverse sample of second-grade students. FORI incorporates the repeated reading of a grade-level text over the course of an academic week. This approach to reading uses scaffolding by expert readers. Results indicate that FORI is a useful scheme for reading instruction with a diverse second-grade student population. Asian, Black, Latino, and White second-grade students made significant improvements in word efficiency and reading comprehension. (Contains 2 tables.)
