Because fluency instruction was identified only recently as a cornerstone literacy subject, it is still an unfamiliar terrain for many teachers. This volume fills a crucial gap by offering a thorough, authoritative examination of what reading fluency is and how it should be taught. The contributing authors - who include the field's leading authorities - review the growing knowledge base and provide clear recommendations for effective, engaging instruction and assessment. The special topics include promising applications for struggling readers and English language learners. Throughout, vignettes and examples from exemplary programs bring the research to life, enhancing the book's utility as an undergraduate- or graduate-level text and a resource for in-service teachers.

'I especially liked the focus on helping children become metacognitive about their own fluency, the use of curriculum-based measures to assess fluency, and the role fluency plays in supporting higher levels of comprehension and critical reading. The blend of theory and practice and the personal style of each of the authors makes this book one that would be useful for graduate courses on teaching and learning reading, as well as for teacher study groups.' - Sara Ann Beach, PhD, University of Oklahoma 'The perfect balance of theory, research, and practical application. By providing multiple perspectives on fluency, the book enables readers to develop their thinking and make informed decisions about assessment and instruction that will best meet the needs of their students. This book will be a valuable resource for preservice and practicing teachers who are interested in improving students' reading fluency.' - Julie K. Kidd, EdD, George Mason University
