Open Access Graduate Research Paper


It is understood that both oral reading and silent reading instruction are necessary functions of a successful reading program. It is also understood that silent and oral reading have many common skills although they represent different processes for the proficient reader. However, a remedial reading setting is not representative of proficient readers. The question to which this research review has been directed is: What are some potential uses of oral reading in a remedial reading setting with elementary age students who have reading problems? The concern of this paper is in areas in addition to the important role that oral reading serves in the diagnosis of students with reading problems since that encompasses a broad topic in itself. It is also in addition to the uses of oral reading for public purpose.
