This thesis explores the implementation of repeated reading and its effect on fluency for students in an academic setting. Included is an explanation of repeated reading and how it can be used in a classroom setting whether in isolation or in addition to an already established reading curriculum. The research looks at repeated reading and the different components that are associated with the intervention. The components are thought of as add-ons to assist in the use of the repeated reading strategy. The research is applied through the repeated reading components. Findings show that repeated reading enhances fluency by improving student’s reading rate, accuracy, and prosody. Students who participated in the repeated reading process increased their confidence, motivation and engagement in reading. Furthermore, repeated reading has been shown to help students transfer reading fluency across content areas. Repeated reading is a beneficial strategy that is quick and easy to apply within the classroom.
