How Reading Intervention Can Help Students to Be More Successful at School

Reading intervention

Using Reading Intervention in the classroom can help students to become more successful at school. This can include STARI, guided oral reading, and modeled fluent oral reading.

Modeled fluent oral reading

Developing fluent oral reading is an important strategy for improving comprehension. Repeated Reading (RR) is an effective oral reading fluency intervention.

RR focuses on improving reading rate, accuracy, and comprehension. Students will learn to identify their strengths and weaknesses and correct their errors. They will receive feedback and practice with new words. This will help them become more fluent and proficient readers.

Researchers have found that students who are at risk for poor reading outcomes should read more. They may also choose other strategies to improve their reading.

In order to improve oral reading fluency, students will need to focus on their rate, accuracy, and comprehension. They will also need to identify their strengths and weaknesses and practice these skills with teacher support. They will then be able to reread the text in different ways.

Assisted reading

Assisted reading is a great way to improve reading fluency. Some examples include tape-assisted reading, audio-assisted reading, and Generated Read Aloud. These programs can be used in multiple content areas and have the potential to improve literacy skills, sight word recognition, and the confidence to attempt reading.

The National Center on Intensive Interventions provides guidance on how to implement such strategies. Assisted reading is often combined with cultural fit, or a more targeted strategy. The most effective of these strategies involves a combination of student-centric activities, teacher-led instruction, and student-to-student interaction.

Using a model reader to provide feedback on a student’s performance is a good way to hone a students’ skill set. Besides demonstrating to a less experienced reader how to correct a paused word, the model might be able to teach them how to reread a passage with improved accuracy.

Guided oral reading

Using guided oral reading as a reading intervention is a very effective way to improve a variety of reading skills. It consists of two main activities: teacher reads a passage aloud, and students reread the same passage on their own.

Although this may sound like a lot of work, the research indicates that students actually benefit from this kind of instruction. The National Reading Panel conducted a study that showed guided oral reading increased word recognition. This means that students will have a better chance of reading accurately.

However, guided oral reading is not the only way to boost fluency. A better approach is to give students a controlled text. Fiction is a great choice because it is easy to practice proper expression.

To get the most out of this method, the instructor needs to provide step-by-step instructions and monitor student progress. It is important to also encourage students to identify positive behaviors.


STARI (Strategic Adolescent Reading Intervention) is an adolescent literacy program that targets the basic reading skills of struggling readers. It includes nine units of reading materials, including novels, short stories, poetry, and nonfiction texts. The goal of STARI is to simultaneously strengthen students’ word-reading and comprehension skills. It focuses on these skills in a tiered approach.

STARI targets the skills of students in grades 6-9 who are reading below grade level. The program has been shown to improve ETS diagnostic subtests. It also reduces achievement gaps between struggling readers and their classmates.

STARI’s goals are to help adolescents develop strong reading skills and to accelerate their progress. It is a literature-focused Tier II intervention. The program has a number of components, all of which are designed to be purposeful and integrated. Some of the elements include fluency practice passages, which are designed to build background knowledge and provide context for other texts.
