This drill uses graphics to predict plots and themes. Also, through repeated reading, perhaps the most fundamental prerequisite for increasing reading fluency is established. It is simply this: the existence of a fluency foundation. Fluency can’t be increased until fluency first exists! A fluent structure can only be built on a fluent foundation! Where no foundation exists, no viable structure can stand! Assuming these statements can be accepted as axiomatic, three more evidential postulates, the value of repeated reading is raised to an incomparable level among developmental reading strategies. For, repeated reading, when running its common and natural course, sets and fortifies a new fluency foundation through each of its cycles -- the more plentiful the cycles, the broader, the deeper the resulting foundation.
