Overview

Learn to enhance your assessment and teaching of fluency!

Finally teachers have access to a professional development series, Evidence-Based Instruction in Reading, written specifically to guide them in sharpening their understanding of the five key components to Reading First—phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. This book focuses on fluency, but each volume in the five-part series addresses one key component and presents friendly tips and strategies that teachers can take right into the classroom.

How to make Fluency work for you!

  • Consider recommendations for incorporating appropriate reading materials, fostering productive home–school connections, and promoting students’ desire to learn to read and write.
  • Read about the findings of current key research studies and learn about their implications for classroom practice.
  • Discover how to evaluate your current practices and create concrete plans for change.
  • Start a learning community or book club and share your knowledge with colleagues.
  • Access useful resources and links to extend and enrich your own learning beyond the classroom.

Teachers rave about A Professional Development Guide to Fluency!

"This book is a godsend! The professional development section of each chapter encourages teachers to reflect upon their current practices and actually make an action plan for improving their practices…This book will make a great book study for literacy coaches to do with their teachers."
