RRR: REMEDIAL READING RESCUE: Reading Fluency.
PART Twelve of a series in remedial reading PowerPoint Presentations.
Over 50 slides with graphics, sounds and teacher's notes.
The skill of reading with fluency requires the reader to take in more than one word at a time. So eye span needs to be developed to include 2, 3 or 4 words at a time. In order to improve eye span the reader needs to be familiar with the material he or she is reading. Therefore, repetitive reading, is used.
Repetitive reading involves rereading the same selection, over and over. Almost to the point of memorization, but more importantly, familiarity with the words, structure and rhythm of story. Familiarity allows the reader to read with more fluency, expression and confidence.
Fuirther this presentation develops and improves eye span. The reader is encouraged to read with his eyes, to be one or two words ahead of his spoken word. When reading aloud, it is important to know what is coming next, in order to apply the necessary inflection and tone intended by the author. As fluency improves so does comprehension, since now the reader is seeing the whole picture, rather than disconnected words.
This program demonstrates its proper use and provides a variety of exercises in order to practice and to perfect the skills of expanded eye span, fluency, inflection, tone and comprehension.
There are two main theories for the nature of Reading: Psycholinguistic guessing game and Complex series of skills. This program encompasses mainly the mastery of the reading skills necessary to achieve comprehension. It is this authors believe that only with a sound basis in the fundamentals, will the reader be able to "guess" the meaning of any passage.
Vince Konicek, earned his Master's Degree in Educational Psychology, at University of California - Riverside. Under the tutelage of Dr. Harry Singer, Vince studied and researched the many different theories of reading, and has incorporated many into his RRR: Remedial Reading Rescue Program.
