"Reading fluency has long been recognized as one of the five essential components of reading. Standards require that elementary students read with accuracy and fluency to support comprehension. Secondary students, too, must possess appropriate fluency skills in order to read and comprehend increasingly complex text. However, too often, fluency is overlooked in reading instruction. Attendees will learn: The strong correlation between reading fluency, comprehension, independent reading and work completion. New methods for promoting fluency within classroom reading routines. How to implement a highly motivating daily six-minute partner routine to increase oral reading fluency for elementary as well as secondary students."
