Abstract

None provided. From statement of problem:

How do you define good reading? How often do you come across

students who read with hesitations, repetitions, word miscalls, and exhibit

word by word reading and slow decoding of words? Oral fluency is seen

as a necessary feature in defining good reading (Allington, 1983). A lack

of fluency in oral reading, usually described as word by word reading or

unlanguage like reading, is often seen as a characteristic of poor readers .
