A Florida State University Center

Audio-Assisted Reading

Students listen to a recorded text at their independent reading level (95% accuracy) while following along with the printed text. Then the student listens again to the recorded text but also reads along with the audio. Next, the student practices reading a section or all of the book until his/her reading is fluent. Ultimately, the student reads the selection to the teacher so the student is held accountable for what they heard and read.
