Full Description

Reading fluency is far more than reading letters and symbols smoothly out loud, it is the bedrock of comprehension. Fluent readers combine all their literacy know-how about orthography, phrasing, intonation, and context to make meaning as they move through a text. But how can teachers help emerging readers become fluent ones?

In Fluency in Focus, you will find all the tools you need to create a strong, fluency-based foundation that supports comprehension in all children, including English language learners. Backed by a thorough summation of the latest research and theory, Prescott-Griffin and Witherell offer you a multitude of classroom-tested, well-organized minilessons that cement good fluency habits in your students. These easy-to-use lessons include:

  • step-by-step teaching techniques
  • forms, reproducibles, and diagnostic tools that support instruction
  • tips, checklists, and rubrics for assessment
  • lists of resources that support the lesson
  • vignettes from classes where the lesson has been used
  • ideas for teaching ESL/ELL students
  • extensions and variations on the lesson for further exploration.
No other resource offers you a more comprehensive, practical, and professional approach to fluency instruction.
