Help your students to get reading, fluently

The ability to read fluently is a vital part of every student’s literacy journey. Fluency and the ability to read orally with speed, accuracy, and proper expression is one of several critical factors necessary for reading comprehension.

Can you imagine being able to give every single child in your class – regardless of age or ability – the proper one-on-one support they need while they practice their reading? Imagine helping them understand the meaning of unfamiliar words, and giving them a full appreciation of the cadence and content of any reading passage.

The open classroom can be far from an ideal environment for kids to practice their reading skills – especially for shy, less confident students who may be self-conscious about reading in front of their peers.

To address these pain points in the classroom, we have invited some of the leading experts in the fields of fluency and reading to help you explore the techniques teachers can immediately apply to help students with instruction.
