A Comparison of the Effects of Repeated Reading and Listening-While-Reading on Reading Fluency
It is widely recognized that literacy is a necessary skill for success in modem society. The ability to interpret and interact with print is critical to meeting the demands of education, employment, daily activities, and continued personal growth. Reading, a component of literacy, has been identified as one of the primary focuses of education by leading researchers, government agencies, and educators (Allington, 2001 ). Within the complex processes of reading, fluency has been identified as a critical component closely linked to the comprehension of text (Allington, 1983). This fact suggests that effort within the classroom to improve oral reading fluency may be an appropriate investment of instructional time.
