The purpose of this research was to determine the effectiveness of various methods of repeated reading to increase beginning readers’ fluency. Specifically, this study investigated the use of choral reading, wide reading, deep reading, paired reading, and poetry reading. The study focused on whether implementing repeated reading techniques over the course of six-weeks would increase readers’ fluency. Students were assessed prior to the start of the research and then again at the end. Data analysis at the conclusion of the study provided insight as to the effectiveness of the intervention implemented.
