|Description:||Read Naturally is a supplemental reading program that aims to improve the reading fluency, accuracy, and comprehension skills of elementary and middle school students using a combination of texts, audio CDs, and computer software. The program uses different products that share a common fluency-building strategy. The strategy includes modeling of story reading, repeated reading of text for developing oral reading fluency, and systematic monitoring of student progress by teachers and the students themselves. The WWC found that the Read Naturally program has no discernible effects on alphabetics and comprehension, mixed effects on reading fluency, and potentially positive effects on general reading achievement for beginning readers. The intervention report includes studies of Read Naturally Masters Edition and Read Naturally Software Edition.|
