Goal: To increase fluency
Objective: To increase fluent reading particularly for students:
•Who often lose their spot while reading
•Who just don’t get to the next word quickly enough
•Who benefit from a delayed model for correct word reading
Materials: Short texts that the student can read with at least 95% accuracy
First Reading – student reads the passage aloud. Teacher provides immediate standard error corrections. (“That word is ____. What word?” The student repeats the word. Teacher says, “Yes, that word is ____.” Student goes back to the beginning of the sentence to begin again).
Second Reading – Teacher and student take turns reading EVERY OTHER WORD. Teacher first this time. Teacher should read with excellent expression to avoid typewriter style output. Teacher should push the pace forward by reading each next word as soon as the student read the last word. Teacher provides standard error correction immediately following any error.
Third Reading – Teacher and student take turns reading EVERY OTHER WORD. Student first this time. Teacher continues to model excellent expression and continues to press the pace forward. Teacher provides standard error correction immediately following any error.
Fourth Reading – Student reads the entire passage out loud alone.
What If I Don’t See Progress:
•Does the student make no more than 5% errors on the text being utilized?
•Have sessions been regular and frequent?
•Has there been sufficient praise?
•Are the error correction procedures being delivered correctly and consistently?
•Does the student have serious decoding issues that need to be addressed?
