Reading Fluency (Webinars)


Webinar Video: Reading for meaning—fluently


Presented February 9, 2016 by Claire Hayes, Read Naturally Consultant.

This presentation explains the importance of fluency in attaining literacy and describes the research-based Read Naturally Strategy for improving fluency in developing and struggling readers. The presenter also walks through the key steps of a Read Naturally Strategy program. Although the Read Naturally Strategy can be purchased as a system, the three strategies of teacher modeling, repeated reading, and progress monitoring can be applied to materials already found in many educators’ classrooms.
