Abstract

This project examines the correlation between playing audio recordings while students read, and the student’s reading comprehension. To complete this study, students read short stories for two weeks. During the first week, students read silently and answered four comprehension questions. During the second week, students read silently, but they also had an audio recording playing while they read. Again they answered four comprehension questions per story. The study was performed in an eighth grade class in a small town middle school. Initial findings show that students’ comprehension scores improved during the audio sessions.
