Abstract

This research attempted to answer the question, how does listening while reading affect reading fluency with at-risk readers? The researcher collected data from four third grade students in an urban school to find out which of the three areas of fluency (accuracy, rate, prosody) would be affected by listening while reading. The researcher used Developmental Reading Assessments (DRA), running records, the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) Fluency Scale, timed readings, and teacher observations to collect data. The data was analyzed to find generalizations about the effectiveness of listening while reading on oral reading fluency.
