The National Reading Panel report identified fluency as “a critical component of skilled reading…often neglected in classroom instruction.” Fluency has also been included in 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.

Content is based on the book: Reading Fluency: Understand, Assess, Teach: LEARNING GUIDE (2019) by Jan Hasbrouck, Ph.D. and Deborah Glaser, Ed.D., available   And the article: Hasbrouck, J. (2020).
