Learn the newest findings on evidence-based instruction for reading fluency from a world renowned expert on this topic, Jan Hasbrouck, Ph.D. All who register can view live and/or watch the recording which will be available for one month. 2 Cont. Ed. Hrs. for All and CMHs for SLPs.
Webinar Description: The National Reading Panel report identified fluency as “a critical component of skilled reading…often neglected in classroom instruction.” Fluency has also been included as an essential foundation skill in the Common Core State Standards. Educators took note, and as a result reading fluency is now a BIG part of teaching and assessing. There are some who feel that there is now perhaps too much emphasis on fluency. This session—presented by one of the nation’s experts on fluency—provides a functional definition of reading fluency, including the newest information about appropriate goals for reading rates.
The session clarifies the role of curriculum-based measures (CBM) of oral reading fluency (ORF), often used to screen students and monitor their overall progress in reading: What do these measures really tell us and how should they be used appropriately? Research-supported fluency instruction strategies will also be addressed. This session provides an opportunity to reflect on how fluency should fit into a comprehensive and effective reading program.
