NCCAT will hold a six-session series focused on a research-to-practice exploration of the foundational skills in early literacy. Effective instruction in these fundamental components holds the key to life-long learning for every child in your classroom. Attend all six and earn an NCCAT literacy badge or attend individual sessions to deepen your own understanding of the building blocks of beginning reading. This class will focus on fluency. “Reading fluency has long been acknowledged as an essential skill that readers must develop to facilitate comprehension and motivate engagement in the act of reading” (Hasbrouck, 2019). This program is intended for teachers and coaches in the kindergarten through fifth-grade classroom.
