I’ve previously shared research documenting the importance of having students read aloud (see Oral Reading In The Mainstream & ELL Classroom and I Knew Encouraging Oral Reading Fluency Was Important, But I Didn’t Realize It Was This Important….), though not generally to the entire class in a round-robing or popcorn way (that can be damaging and/or ineffective form of instruction). Instead, I typically have students read in pairs.
A new study has just come out reinforcing that previous research.
Here’s an excerpt from Study finds reading information aloud to yourself improves memory:
Quartz has an even more extensive review of the study at You remember more of what you read out loud.
I’m adding this info to The Best Resources On Reading Fluency (Including How To Measure It).
