So CA Tri-Counties Branch of IDA Outreach: Fluency is the Bridge, Comprehension is the Destination
October 7, 2021 @ 9:00 pm - 10:15 pmFree
The So CA Tri-Counties Branch of IDA is hosting this free webinar.
We all know fluency is one of the “Big Five” essential components of reading, but do we have a shared understanding of how fluency is specifically essential to comprehension? Fluent reading provides an all-important link between decoding and comprehension, impacting our ability to engage in reading; develop vocabulary, academic language, and content knowledge; and to ultimately deeply comprehend complex text. This session will provide an overview of what fluency is and how it is assessed, along with practical tips for teaching fluency at the word and text levels.
Speaker: Laura Stewart has served as a teacher, administrator, director of literacy initiatives, and organizational leader. She presents nationally and internationally and is a published author. Laura is currently the National Director of The Reading League; her passion is empowering educators so that ALL children can learn to read.
