Reading fluency, one of the Five Pillars of Reading, is defined as the ability to read with speed, accuracy, and proper expression. Reading fluency greatly influences reading comprehension. Children must be able to read fluently in order to comprehend what they read, whether they are reading aloud or silently. Fluent readers read in phrases and add appropriate intonation when reading aloud without needing to pause to decode words or look up definitions. 

Fluency plays a key role in comprehension and is essential in keeping young learners motivated. When children are reading fluently, it frees up mental resources to allow them to improve their comprehension of what they are reading. Research has shown that students need frequent opportunities for substantial practice at their instructional reading level in order to achieve an appropriate level of reading fluency. Silent reading does not accomplish this goal. It is important to provide the student with feedback as well as opportunities to self-correct. This combination of consistent practice and regular monitoring is critical in promoting fluency.

Determiniamo la fluidit? della lettura esaminando sia la velocit? di lettura che l'espressione del testo. I lettori molto fluenti sono in grado di leggere il testo automaticamente e senza sforzo per decodificare le lettere in suoni. I bambini devono costruire una solida base di decodifica e una base di parole visive che vengono riconosciute automaticamente per aumentare i loro livelli di fluidit


Reading Fluency


I tassi di fluidit? della lettura pi? lenti possono portare a difficolt? a scuola, poich? sono spesso il risultato del passare troppo tempo a decodificare le singole parole. Questo pu? portare a non avere abbastanza tempo per capire un passaggio o un testo nel suo insieme.

I tutor possono lavorare su fraseggi e intonazioni, eco e letture ripetute.
