Reading fluency instruction is usually put aside after early primary grades in order to focus more on comprehension. However, much current research argues that they should continue to be taught together. Although automaticity is important when reading, and rate is an indication of this immediate word recognition, it should not be the sole purpose of our reading fluency instruction. Additionally, the way one reads orally is likely the way one reads silently. Prosody is an essential skill and requires direct instruction. In this webinar, we will discuss how instruction in reading fluency can improve fluent reading, comprehension, and overall reading proficiency at all levels and provide strategies for doing so.
This session is appropriate for educators at the middle and high school levels.
Any materials will be shared electronically.
