Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand the importance of using culturally relevant material for reading interventions.
  2. compare the effectiveness of using culturally relevant and nonculturally relevant reading passages for Latino students.
  3. understand the results, limitations, and implications of the study.

Description

This poster presentation will compare the use of culturally relevant and non–culturally relevant passages in a repeated reading intervention. The study includes two elementary Latino students identified as having reading difficulties from screening data. It was hypothesized that students’ fluency on the culturally relevant passages would be greater in the repeated reading and nonrepeated reading conditions, compared to the non–culturally relevant passages. Results, limitations and implications will also be presented.
