Main description

Jamestown's Reading Fluency series, a research-based approach to increasing fluency, can help students become more fluent readers. Students work in pairs and, at comfortable levels, practice reading aloud smoothly, accurately, and expressively. One student reads aloud a narrative fiction or nonfiction passage from the non-consumable Reader. A partner uses the consumable Reader's Record, marking errors and scoring the oral reading. Repeated readings encourage students to improve their fluency.
