Use Phrasing to Improve Fluency

Encourage reading fluency with a lesson that examines the proper use of propositional and introductory phrases. After listening to and discussing an example of someone having trouble reading aloud, scholars obtain a leveled reading passage. Pupils complete a read-aloud in front of a peer who evaluates them on their completion. Using the same passage, participants underline prepositional and introductory phrases in preparation for a larger practice of the same skill. Participants choral read a passage to close the lesson. Assessment is taken one-on-one with a new reading passage.
