“Reading fluency is perhaps the least understood and most neglected aspect of proficient reading. Too often, teachers have a narrow view of fluency and a limited repertoire of strategies to develop it. This book addresses this complex subject in a way that makes it understandable for the novice teacher, yet even veteran teachers will find these pages packed with valuable information and new insights. The strategies presented are practical for classroom application and are founded on a strong research base. This book should be required reading in any program preparing teachers to teach reading.”

—Holly B. Lane, PhD, College of Education, University of Florida

“This volume represents the collective efforts of scholars charged with the task of investigating the complex skill we call reading fluency. Disseminating important research in this area, the volume very coherently walks the reader through the multiple aspects of fluent reading, with significant attention to the implications for classroom practice and home literacy. It provides in-depth insight into the multifaceted nature of fluency, and advances our understanding of supporting learners who are experiencing reading difficulties. This book will be useful for researchers and practitioners alike who are guided by the goal of ensuring all learners are successful, strong readers.”

—Nonie K. Lesaux, PhD, Harvard Graduate School of Education

“This book distills the findings of five years of programmatic research on developing fluency. Easy to read, with lots of classroom examples, Fluency in the Classroom gives a key component in the reading curriculum the attention it deserves. It's exactly what primary grade teachers need to help their students become fluent readers.”
