Focus on Reading at F.P.S - Website

Reading texts - fluency

Reading texts involves recognising word automatically, reading in a phrased and fluent way and navigating texts to create meaning. When readers use appropriate volume, tone, emphasis, phrasing, and other elements in oral expression, they are giving evidence of actively interpreting or constructing meaning from a text. This is where the link between comprehension and reading fluency can be easily seen.

M-A-P (modelled, assisted and practice) helps us remember how best to teach fluent, accurate reading.

Students need to be explicitly taught about word, sentence and text level fluencies including navigational pathways of a range of texts.
