Accelerating reading trajectories: The effects of dynamic research-based instruction

The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of five variables that are believed to predict rate of learning to read for second grade students. Rate of reading acquisition was investigated through examining students' early literacy growth trajectories. The variables that were examined were (a) research-based fluency instruction, (b) verbal and nonverbal intelligence, (c) phonological awareness, (d) alphabetic understanding, and (e) initial oral reading fluency.
