CRLP Results: Word Recognition and Fluency

Supporting Implementation of the Common Core State Standards: Foundational Skills (K-5)

The CCSS Foundational Skills are critical prerequisites for reading comprehension.  Skills such as the ability to decode words accurately, quickly, and easily have a direct impact on students’ reading comprehension. CRLP Results: Word Recognition and Fluency provides professional development on the Foundational Skills students need to learn, when they need to be covered within an overall scope and sequence, and how instruction might be approached. This institute also emphasizes why these skills must be learned, when the optimal time is to teach these skills, and how to do so. CRLP Results: Word Recognition and Fluency is designed specifically to make sure all students are successful readers.
