Research states that a student’s reading fluency has a direct correlation to their reading comprehension. This literature review investigates the most effective reading strategies that increase a student’s reading fluency rate. The research explores strategies such as repeated readings, modeling and scaffolding, preteaching key words in text, and silent reading. This literature review will bestow peer reviewed, scholarly journals to research the most effective reading strategies to increase student’s reading fluency rate. The results of the various studies throughout this paper determined that repeated reading strategies that incorporate scaffolded repetitive readings of a text, such as FORI (Fluency Oriented Reading Instruction) have been highly successful. Modeling and repeated readings along with other interventions in place were also found to be highly successful.
