REPEATED READING WILL IMPROVE YOUR CHILD’S READING ABILITY
research on Repeated Reading: Repeated reading improves the reading
fluency and comprehension of students with and without learning
disabilities, not only on the passages with which students previously
used the strategy, but also with new passages. Several instructional
components are found to be essential to the success of repeated reading.
Rereading a passage until a set number of words per minute is reached
has shown a significant positive impact on students’ progress during
repeated reading. The greatest improvements are seen when students are
asked to focus on both fluency and comprehension together.
reading is a strategy that we use here at Price to help our scholars
improve their fluency and comprehension. This is a strategy you can
practice at home as well. All you need to do is ask your child to select
a section in their book that has at least 100-200 words. You ask your
child to read it and repeat the reading several times. This strategy
will help your child improve his fluency and will lead to improvement in
comprehension as well.
