In this episode, we chat with Dr. Erin Washburn (Binghamton University) about what teachers know about the basic constructs of literacy and how she’s working to support teacher knowledge in this area.
What’s inside: In this episode, we interview Jan Hasbrouck, PhD, nationally recognized researcher and expert in the area of Reading Fluency. We’ll talk about her research resulted in the creation of national norms for student reading fluency and the recent revision of those norms, "2017 National Reading Fluency Norms (Update).
Classroom Implications: The 2017 research on fluency rates did not show statistically significant changes in reading fluency rates. Teachers can use the revised norms as a dependable benchmark with which to compare their student’s reading fluency rate. Dr. Hasbrouck also delves into what reading fluency is and how Oral Reading Fluency (ORF) measures can be used as a tool to support proficient reading acquisition in students.
