Reading fluency highly correlates to reading comprehension. And reading fluency can be taught, not just caught.
Here is a terrific management system, designed by an MA reading specialist, that can be implemented twice per week in two 20 minute sessions. Students are divided into three or four groups based upon the results of an individual fluency assessment. Using choral readings, each group practices at different reading speeds to develop automaticity.
Also included is a unique individual fluency assessment. This expository fluency passage is designed with the first two paragraphs at the third-grade reading level, the next two at the fifth-grade level, and the last two and the seventh-grade level. The design permits students to push through simple reading to more complex in a two-minute timing.
