Oral reading; Reading; Phonetics--Study and teaching


The case study examines an intervention aimed at increasing oral reading fluency in a struggling second grade reader. The intervention was designed around the student’s literacy needs, current literacy research, and Common Core State Standards. The intervention utilized repeated readings, phonemic awareness instruction, phonics instruction, self assessment, corrective feedback, and modeling to increase oral reading fluency. The intervention took place for five weeks with a total ten intervention sessions. Results of the study suggest that the intervention was effective as overall oral reading fluency increased. Results also suggest that corrective feedback, instruction in phonemic awareness and phonics, and self assessment are effective instructional methods to increase oral reading fluency in addition to repeated readings.
