This course is offered during our Dyslexia Academy for Educators week

This course presents a discussion and analysis of reading fluency and the components which comprise it. Skills that help build automaticity at the word level, improve accuracy, and develop prosody (phrasing and expression) of connected text will be discussed. In addition, error recording and analysis will be practiced, and selected fluency strategies will be summarized and practiced. Finally, activities to enhance students’ reading fluency at the word, phrase, and passage level will be presented. This course is designed for teachers who desire practical strategies to enhance the reading fluency of their learners.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • summarize the importance of oral reading fluency in building a connection between basic reading skills and reading comprehension
  • develop ways to record reading miscues to accurately and consistently track and handle errors
  • identify various strategies that address accuracy, phrasing, and/or expression difficulties depending on the student’s particular needs
  • summarize strategies for handling student errors
  • develop an effective lesson plan based on a student’s reading errors, rate, and difficulties with phrasing and expression



This course is appropriate for educators at the elementary and middle school levels.



Participants may elect to add 1 graduate credit to this course.
