The Role of Automaticity in Reading

Reading fluency is often defined in terms of reading speed. This has resulted in the unfortunate classroom practice of "timed reads" where students are encouraged to read as fast as they can within a given period of time. Rather than speed, the more appropriate goal for fluency instruction is automaticity in word recognition. In this webinar Dr. Tim Rasinski will explore the nature of automaticity and why it is so important for reading - not just fluency, but also comprehension. He will share engaging and authentic instructional approaches for developing this critical competency for reading.
