Case Scenario 1
Mary is a third grader at a small private school. It
is the beginning of the second semester of the school year and assessment data
show that Mary is still having difficulty with decoding multi-syllable words,
as 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
Emma is a shy third grader who is struggling in all
academic subjects that require significant reading. Assessment data show that 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.
This might be because Emma appears to have a low self-concept. Emma reads aloud
very softly and slowly, often waiting to speak a word until she is sure she can
pronounce it correctly. Because Mr. Haywood, her
teacher, believes that Emma has the needed skills to improve her fluency, he
has decided to implement a strategy that will help Emma reach her goal, which
Given reading passages at the third-grade level, Emma will read
Case Scenario 3
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, and
especially enjoys hands-on science activities. 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. Daniel’s teacher has decided to implement strategies that
will help him reach his goal, which is:
You were suppose to read each case study and answer these question: States the academic goal for the case study student.
an approach to build fluency skills for reading based on the needs of the student in the case study.
how you would implement the approach, including the number of sessions and length of time required for the sessions.
why that approach is beneficial for the student and provides a rationale for the number of sessions and time needed for the implementation activities.
your decisions for each case study with at least one scholarly resource.
It is important to practice the process of reviewing, analyzing, and modifying instruction based on student information. “Case Studies Focusing on Fluency Strategies” provides you the opportunity to practice the cycle of reviewing, analyzing, and modifying, with a specific focus on building students’ fluency skills.
Review “Case Studies: Focusing on Fluency Strategies.”
For each of the three case studies, write a separate 250‐500 word analysis that:
States the academic goal for the case study student.
Identifies an approach to build fluency skills for reading based on the needs of the student in the case study.
Describes how you would implement the approach, including the number of sessions and length of time required for the sessions.
Justifies why that approach is beneficial for the student and provides a rationale for the number of sessions and time needed for the implementation activities.
Support your decisions for each case study with at least one scholarly resource.
