Oral Fluency Through Confidence and Practice
Over the 10 years I was a travelling (within one district) ESL teacher, I found one reading technique very productive. It is best in small groups; and even better one or two to one. The open text faces the student, so that the teacher learns to read upside down. Track as the student reads aloud; and when an error occurs, correct it for the student and keep reading. Don't stop to belabour the correction. The idea here is oral fluency through confidence and practice. Use the same technique for any questions
