Last week Freddy did a webinar with Pearson, publisher of QuickReads.
In this webinar, Freddy demonstrates why automaticity remains a major challenge for many students. Freddy has coined a new term—comprehension-based silent reading rate (CBSRR)—to describe what we need to be focusing on. Attention to CBSRR is very different than the over-emphasis on oral reading that been so prominent over the last decade. In particular, Freddy focuses on the manner in which texts can facilitate or impede the development of CBSRR.
