Abstract

Being able to read proficiently is a key skill that students must learn to be successful in school as well as being able to function in society. Three of the main interventions to help students reach proficiency in reading are repeated reading, listening passage preview, and error correction. Each intervention has been shown to provide some benefit to students who struggle with reading when done independently or combined with repeated reading. However, the current literature on repeated reading, listening passage preview, and error correction is sparse when comparing the three against each other. The current study examined repeated reading, listening passage preview, and error correction by alternating the three interventions for a 5th grade student in a block rotation for 15 sessions. The main finding indicated that repeated reading was the most effective at improving the student’s fluency.
