There Is More to Fluency than Speed and Accuracy
Hedrick, Wanda, Ed.
Voices from the Middle, v14 n4 p55-56 May 2007
Fluency is another concept whose many definitions lead to widely differing practices. It is easy to understand that reading words on a page does not make a person fluent if they don't take away meaning from that reading. Hedrick asks that teachers and administrators examine policies that let speed and accuracy in reading substitute for meaning making. (Contains 1 footnote.) ["There Is More to Fluency than Speed and Accuracy" was written with Rita Harb, Adrienne Paone, Christine Sikes, and Peggy Clark.]
