I have read What Really Matters in Fluency by Richard Allington, and although I learned a lot (and recommend it), I felt that The Fluent Reader gave me more in the way of specific lessons to implement in a step-by-step manner for my classroom. I used small post-its to mark parts of the book that I need to refer back to, and after I was done reading it, I wrote headings on them and now they are tabs to easily find what I need until I get used to the lessons.
I have a colleague who went to a lecture given my Tim Rasinski last year and was impressed by his lecture, his fluency knowledge, and his research to back that knowledge. It was her enthusiasm about the experience that inspired me to buy the book and now implement his ideas into my curriculum. I'm excited about helping my students achieve fluency success, since that is the only thing holding some of them back. I will be introducing the new lessons beginning this week with some of my groups--I will try to update once I have been using them for awhile to see how it is affecting my students' fluency scores.
I have now used his poetry lesson suggestions for a number of weeks, and I have seen improvements with almost all of my students. One mother said this is the first time she has heard her son (3rd grade this year) read in a fluent way.Read more ›
