Reviews - What do customers think about Building Fluency: Lessons and Strategies for Reading Success?
Building Fluency Jan 13, 2007
The speed drills are quick, easy to manage in small groups and help students reach attainable goals.
Marginal Usefulness Oct 5, 2006
Although the information in this book is useful, it is not the activity book that the shopper might be expecting. The fluency passages are too few, and the lower-level passages are reapeated twice on the page. While this makes duplication easy, it sacrifices additional fluency passage inclusion. Although some of the speed drills and word activities are useful, this book is a little light on content.
Great resource for classroom teachers Feb 26, 2006

A must have for new teachers Aug 12, 2005
This book is wonderfully straightforward and immediately applicable in your classroom. It clearly explains the why and the how so you can target this area of reading instruction which is often neglected. It is a quick read and the suggestions are easy to implement without a large investment of time or money. The activities suggested are meaningful, not cutesy, and the assessment suggestions are authentic. Also, the book suggests ways to allow students to track their own progress. This would complement whatever reading program you use; whether basal, 4-blocks, or balanced literacy.
