dc.description.abstractThe repeated reading strategy can be used to reach effective results and increase students’ reading comprehension. The purpose of this study is to explore the effects of the repeated reading strategy in Saudi Arabia on 5th grade students’ reading comprehension. Repeated reading is a strategy that consists of rereading a short and relevant passage until an acceptable level of fluency is attained. The research question answered by this study is: Compared to the traditional teaching strategy, how does the repeated reading strategy impact reading comprehension of fifth grade students in Saudi Arabia? The study began in December, 2014 and continued until January, 2015. The participants of this study were twenty female students in the fifth grade in a girl’s elementary school. The study was done in two groups using two classes. The experimental group used the repeated reading strategy, while the control group was taught using a traditional teaching method. The questions on the test were taken from a fifth grade text book. The researcher used the repeated reading strategy with these students to investigate the impact of the repeated reading strategy on students’ reading comprehension. According to the results, the repeated reading strategy showed positive effects on the development and improvement of these Saudi students’ comprehension. In conclusion, repeated reading is one of many important reading strategies, has a positive impact on students, and helps them to improve their reading comprehension.en_US
