42 Days to Reading Fluency 1

The philosophy governing this reading program hinges on the application of several well established and scientifically demonstrable educational practices: repeated reading (Allington, 2001, p. 82); leveled questioning (Ryder & Graves, 1999, p. 103-107); and the writing of unaided summaries / retellings (Tierney & Readence, 2000, p.508). This program utilizes these three practices in tandem, causing their products and by-products to engender, complement, and substantiate one another. Through this program, students will learn to read fluently, analyze logically, comprehend implicitly, and retain completely.
