I fully agree with many of the strategies posted on this page. Our school teaches fluency as part of a researched-based reading program (Success For All). Part of the of the program is not only grouping students by their individual reading levels, but also working constantly in cooperative groups. Partner reading and fluency reading with the teacher are key elements in this program. Further, SFA dictates every students from the youngest on up, reads aloud at home for a minimum of 20/ day with an adult or parent. Additionally, our school has a "Reading Olympics" where the students are partner reading a passage, initially as a cold read, then for fluency for four days, charting their individual successes. We do this drill daily for a period of ten minutes. Once per month the teacher performs a one-one assessment as cold read. The students are rewarded with "gold medals" if they move to the next reading level.
