Teaching Reading Fluency
- Course Section Description:
A fluent reader is more confident and successful. Learn quantitative and qualitative techniques to assess and improve students' fluency, and discover ways technology can foster students' fluency progress. Apply practical, research-based strategies that leverage trusted PBS resources to help parents make the home-to-school connection. This course is also ideal for teachers who work with older, struggling readers. Content aligns with the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and International Reading Association (IRA) standards.
Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.
Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).
