Case Study Presentation Jeffrey Crowe EDPY 556

Type of Intervention used:

Type of Intervention used Each of the subjects in this study were 6 th graders from a school on the High desert. They each expressed a desire to improve their reading speed. This was collaborated by the subjects teacher and mother. Each was given a baseline data test and given an intervention in order for the students to improve their reading fluency.

Reason for interventions:

Reason for interventions Each of the mothers of the three students for this case study expressed a fear that their child's reading speed would decline over the summer months in between 6 th and 7 th grades. Although the student did not have significant reading problem they each felt that they could and should improve their reading ability over the summer.

Demographics of first child:

Baseline Data for each of the Students:

Baseline Data for each of the Students Dibels Oral Reading Fluency Benchmark HM Date of Benchmark Words read per minute 5/1/11- 110 5/3/11- 116 5/5/11- 112 RK Date of Benchmark Words read per minute 5/1/11 125 5/3/11 122 5/5/11 122 DE Date of Benchmark Words read per minute 5/1/11- 135 5/3/11- 135 5/5/11- 134

Type of Interventions:

Type of Interventions Each student was given an intervention to help them improve their reading words per minute score. They were each instructed to read at least 30 minutes a night with their parents, in a repeated reading exercise. Each was asked to read the same passage each night for three days, and attempting to improve the amount they read with each occurrence. After that passage was mastered they would chose another passage to read. This would be monitored for a span of seven weeks.

Progress Monitoring:

Progress Monitoring Each of the students were tested each week to make sure they were increasing their reading speed. They were also interviewed to check if they have completed the required interventions for the week.

Goal line:

Goal line Anywhere above 127 words read per minute is the acceptable range for children in the 6 th grade. Each of the students studied wanted to surpass this mark before they graduated.

HM’s Data :

HM’s Data HM had a low baseline score but was able to steadily increase her words read per minute to an acceptable range End of baseline Range of Accepted Words per Minute

RK’s Data:

RK’s Data RK’s baseline score was barely below an acceptable range, but was able to increase his score to a very acceptable range by the end of the intervention. End of baseline Range of Accepted Words per Minute

DE’s Data:

DE’s Data Although DE’s baseline score was in the acceptable range she still was interested in increasing her reading speed. She was able to raise her score to very acceptable range by the conclusion of the intervention. End of baseline Range of Accepted Words per Minute

Conclusion:

Conclusion Each of the students were given an intervention to increase their reading speed and comprehension before they graduated from the 6 th grade. Each was given a baseline test and also given a goal line to reach by the end of the 7 week intervention. All the goal set for the students were not only reached but surpassed in each intervention. Therefore it can be concluded that the interventions given are acceptable for increasing reading speed in sixth graders.
