A FEW FLUENCY TEACHING REMINDERS...
The most important thing you need to remember is to get kids reading TEXT! This pack will get your students reading text! More time spent reading text improves reading ability! As you teach explicit fluency instruction to your class remember it is more than just giving them practice reading.
PROSODY ELEMENTS are used for teaching!
When we teach fluency, we focus on the elements found within Prosody.
The prosody elements are: intonation, volume, stress, pitch, punctuation, expression, smoothness, and phrasing. These elements of prosody, when taught to young readers, will improve their rate and ability to comprehend text.
What Fluency Instruction IS:
-Focuses on Good Reading = PROSODY!
-Accuracy (Problems in accuracy tell us a Phonics diagnostic assessment is needed.)
-Rate (We do not teach kids to read fast, we use rate as an outcome of our prosody -element focus instruction. We may even teach kids to slow down to comprehend.)
-Uses the Gradual Release of Responsibility
-Includes a Teacher Demonstration with a Think-Aloud
-Teacher Provides Specific and Corrective Feedback to the Students
-Includes Repeated Reading of Texts AND Wide Reading of Texts
