Case Studies: Focusing on Fluency Strategies Case Scenario #1 Student: Mary Age: 8.6 Grade: 3rd Mary is a third grader at a small private school. It is the beginning of the second semester of the school year and Mary is still having difficulty with decoding multi-syllable words but also so are many of her classmates. The students are struggling with an important reading skill that will be assessed at the end of the school year and will be important for success in the following years. Mr. Bounds, Mary’s teacher, has decided to implement strategies each day that will assist all of his students, Mary included, in reaching the following goal: Given multi-syllable words, students will decode them accurately and with ease. Case Scenario #2 Student: Emma Age: 8.4 Grade: 3rd Emma is a shy third grader who is struggling in all academic subjects that require significant reading. Emma is able to read all sight words and decode most of the multi-syllable words she encounters. However, Emma’s fluency is not at the level of most third graders and might be because Emma has a low self-concept. Emma reads aloud very softly and slowly, often waiting to speak a word until she can pronounce it correctly. Because Mr. Haywood believes that Emma has the needed skills to improve her fluency he has decided to implement strategies that will help Emma reach her goal, which is: Given reading passages at the fifth-grade level, Emma will read fluently. Case Scenario #3 Student: Daniel Age: 8.8 Grade: 3rd Daniel is a quiet third grader who is naturally organized and thrives on structure. Daniel’s mother reports that he tends to be focused on tasks, even in play. He is diligent with academic tasks. When reading aloud in class, Daniel is able to read all sight words and decode most multi-syllable words he encounters. However, Daniel’s fluency is not at the level of most third graders. He is a word-by-word reader and does not read with proper tone or expression, but has the skills needed to become a fluent, expressive reader. She has decided to implement strategies that will help him reach his goal, which is: Given readings at the fourth-grade level, Daniel will read fluently. © 2015. Grand Canyon University.

Case Studies: Focusing on Fluency Strategies
Student’s Name
Institution Affiliation


Case 1
The academic goal in the case of Mary is establishing the best strategies that can
be used with students in third grade to improve their fluency. Since most of the students
in the class are having the same issue, Mr. Bounds can determine the best method that
will help all the students. Since fluency develops as a result of practice, the class can be
involved in reading and rereading a wide range of stories before the end of the school
The goal of ensuring fluency is reading is enabling Mary and her classmates to
decode any given multi-syllable words accurately and with ease. The best fluency
strategy to use in this case would be helping the students to establish the number of
syllables present on one long name. The teacher will separate the syllables and show the
students how to pronounce each separately. The term protective, for example, will be
separated into pro/tec/tive, which is easier to pronounce. Mary and the rest students w...
