The Read Naturally Strategy

Teacher Modeling, Repeated Reading, Progress MonitoringThe Read Naturally Strategy combines these research-proven strategies to develop reading fluency:

  • Teacher Modeling—the student reads along while listening to a fluent reader read a high-interest story. Reading along helps students learn unknown words and encourages proper pronunciation, expression, and phrasing.
  • Repeated Reading—the student practices reading a story until he or she is able to read it at a predetermined goal rate. This strategy enables students to build fluency and confidence.
  • Progress Monitoring—the student is given a challenging goal and sees immediate and frequent feedback on progress toward that goal, motivating him or her to read and improve. After completing a story, students can see before-and-after feedback, making them aware of and responsible for their own progress.
