Özet

This research aimed to develop the reading technique and reading comprehension skills of a student with reading difficulties through using the Word Drill Technique and the 3P Method. An action research approach was used here. The research was conducted with a female second-grade student. Reading exercises were used with her for 30 hours, based on the Word Drill Technique and the 3P Method. Due to them, it was observed that she advanced from the anxiety level to the instructional level. Her word recognition increased from 86% to 94%, while her comprehension percentage increased from 46% to 76%. In addition, the number of mistakes she made during reading diminished and she gave up finger-tracking while reading. The findings reveal that the Word Drill Technique and the 3P Method are effective in eliminating the problems of a student who does not have a mental or physical problem but has reading and comprehension problems.
