Imam Suhaimi

Abstract


Reading can be said as a complex endeavor that is made
up of multiple components, all of which must be orchestrated and
executed by the reader with the goal of making meaning from the text.
Reading effectively requires readers to make accurate sense of the text
by making inferences based on connections beyond and within the
current text. This study investigated the effects of a reading strategy,
repeated readings, on reading fluency. Three students as members of
two classrooms in one junior high school participated in this 2 weeks
study. The research employed a quantitative means by using preexperimental Design. A pre – Post - test design was used. The results of
this study indicate that repeated reading strategy is found out to be an
overall effective on reading speed and reading accuracy. This study has
some recommendations for teaching instructions and research. For
example, teachers can use it as an instructional approach for improving
the reading fluency not only for those with reading difficulties, but also
for all students. As for research, future studies should consider a larger
number of students who experience reading difficulties.
