This resource provides teachers with approaches to fluency instruction that are effective, engaging, and easy to implement.

A unique feature of the book are the participation sections “What do you think?” and “What we think,” which challenge the reader to engage in issues related to fluency—from concept, to assessment, to instruction—and then check their views against those of the authors.
