READING FLUENCY TUTORING
How to improve Reading Fluency
Provide and encourage opportunities for students to read and reread a wide range of stories or text.
Introduce and practice reading new or challenging words before allowing the student to read them on their own.
From time to time, monitor and time the student’s oral reading, taking note of reading rate and accuracy.
Model fluent reading and encourage students to reread the text on their own. Aside from demonstrating how fluent reading should be, this also shows students that a reader’s voice or intonation makes a difference in deriving meaning from written text.
