When it comes to reading comprehension, teachers generally think of vocabulary, comprehension skills, and background knowledge as the critical components for students entering the middle grades. While this is true, we’re learning it’s an incomplete picture. Reading fluency is also vital to becoming a competent reader.

During this on-demand webinar, Dr. Claude Goldenberg will discuss reading fluency and aspects of reading fluency that are often ignored once students are no longer in the stage of early literacy development. You will learn:

  • Why reading fluency matters for adolescent readers
  • Why reading fluency might particularly matter for English learners
  • The four key components of reading fluency
  • Strategies to help both English learners and non-English learners experiencing reading difficulties due to a lack of reading fluency

Watch this webinar to better understand the skills adolescents need in order to be successful readers and how to support both native and new English speakers develop those skills.
