Fluency provides a link between word recognition and comprehension that’s crucial for reading success—and the Common Core State Standards have identified fluency as a foundational competency for reading success.
Join Timothy Rasinski to discuss how to make effective, informed decisions about fluency instruction in your elementary or middle school classroom, especially in relation to CCSS.
During this one-hour webinar, Tim will delve deeper into effective fluency instruction, focusing on how fluency connects to word study instruction and giving research-based ideas for teaching fluency in engaging, powerful ways. Here’s a convenient, affordable way for you to gain practical solutions and share ideas with a true leader in the literacy field.
Bonus — Your registration to the live event includes access to the webinar archive, too, so you can review it any time. (You will have access to the recording until June 1, 2013.)
