Event description
This ReadWA event with Dr. Jan Hasbrouck will take an in-depth look at reading fluency and its role in reading assessment and instruction.

About this Event

Please join us for this FREE ReadWA workshop with Dr. Jan Hasbrouck for an in-depth look at reading fluency. The National Reading Panel report identified fluency as “a critical component of skilled reading…often neglected in classroom instruction.” Fluency has also been included in an essential foundation skill in the Common Core State Standards. Educators took note, and reading fluency is now a BIG part of teaching and assessing. Some feel there is now perhaps too much emphasis on fluency.

This session, presented by one of the nation’s experts on fluency, provides a functional definition of reading fluency and clarifies the role of curriculum-based measures (CBM) of oral reading fluency (ORF), often used to screen students and monitor their overall progress in reading. What do these measures really tell us and how should they be used appropriately? Research-supported fluency instruction strategies will also be addressed. This session provides an opportunity to reflect on how fluency should fit into a comprehensive and effective reading program. The updated compiled ORF norms (Hasbrouck & Tindal, 2017; 2006; 1992) will be discussed.

All participants will receive a complimentary copy of Dr. Hasbrouck’s latest professional development book, Reading Fluency: Understand, Assess, Teach, co-authored with Deborah Glaser, Ed.D.

This event is free thanks to the generous support of our event sponsors: Benchmark Education, Step By Step Learning, and Voyager Sopris Learning.
