Thursday, August 25, 2016 - 1:00 pm CDT

Dr. Timothy Rasinski, Professor of Reading Education at Kent State University, believes that over the years reading fluency has been ignored, misunderstood, and viewed as unimportant in reading. In this webinar, he will make the case that reading fluency is critically important for proficient reading and that a significant number of struggling readers are not sufficiently fluent. In addition to making the case for fluency, Dr. Rasinski will share engaging and proven approaches for making fluency an integral part of your reading curriculum.
