If a student reads but doesn’t comprehend, is that truly reading? Fluency is an important predictor of reading comprehension and a key element of any successful reading program (National Reading Panel). Some students fail to achieve sufficient fluency to comprehend their reading and many teachers are unsure how best to help. Indeed research has demonstrated that difficulties in reading fluency are a particular concern for many special education students and English Language Learners. Dr. Rasinski will provide the research on fluency and how it is the often neglected bridge to comprehension for all students, and especially for those students we may consider most at-risk. He will share approaches to teaching this all-important reading skill that will move students toward better comprehension.
