Fluency Foundation: Talking Fingers

This project examined two models for increasing reading fluency. In one model, children were taught advanced decoding skills and then were asked to apply these skills to text reading. In the second model, children were asked to engage in frequent oral reading of connected test.  Both models were compared using computer programs designed to increase reading fluency based on one or the other model. This endeavor began in 2005 and was completed in 2006.
