Reading Connections

The goal of this class is to teach students to become more fluent readers by using systematic classroom-based instructional assessments to monitor student progress in both rate and accuracy

Why is Fluency Important? Because non-fluent readers focus much of their attention on figuring out words, they have less attention to devote to comprehension. Fluent readers are able to focus their attention on understanding text.

This class is designed to help students improve their reading fluency and reading comprehension skills. Fluency is the ability to read text accurately and quickly. Fluency bridges word decoding and comprehension. Comprehension is understanding what has been read.
