Reading Remediation

Question: How can teachers help students with correctible difficulties in reading?

Answer/Quote: “Children with specific correctible difficulties will show very substantial gains in score when the teacher ‘reinforces’ the pupil’s reading by reading aloud while the child reads silently.” P. 313.

Comment: Worth a try. In addition, may affect student’s fluency in reading. RayS.
