Traditional and Innovative Approaches to Fluency Development: The Neglected Area of the Curriculum
Rizopoulos, Lisa Anne
Language and Literacy Spectrum, v14 p22-30 Spr 2004
In the past, fluency has been considered a neglected area of reading instruction, but it is unequivocally an essential component of an effective reading program. For children to develop into confident, fluent readers, they must be exposed to a variety of meaningful strategies that provide plenty of successful reading practice. Teachers that implement traditional approaches can complement their instruction with more innovative approaches to fluency development by integrating technology into the curriculum. These innovative, multisensory approaches to fluency development will encourage struggling and resistant readers to work on their fluency skills through the use of information and communication technology.
