Confident Reading for Academic Success

How does the new Fast ForWord teach fluency?

Reading fluency is the ability to decode words easily and accurately, recognize words with automaticity, and read aloud text with prosody. It is the single best predictor of reading comprehension. Instead of reading word by word, fluent readers focus their attention on the meaning and the message of the text.
The new version of Fast ForWord for K-12 offers:
Modeled readings: Each selection contains a fluent audio model, particularly important for ELLs and young readers.
Pronunciation support: The program intervenes with pronunciation if/when the student needs it. You’ll never miss a teachable moment!
Repeated oral practice: Students read aloud each passage a minimum of two times.

Some Exercises Examples:
