Reading Fluency: Related to Prosody ➔ Much More than Speed

 

January 25, 2023

SPEAKER: Nancy Cushen White, Ed.D.

Fluent reading is a combination of accuracy, prosody, and automaticity; together, they facilitate reading comprehension. Fluency is demonstrated during oral reading through ease of word recognition, appropriate pacing, chunking of words into meaningful phrases, and intonation. The ability to chunk words into meaningful phrases is related to syntactic awareness. Excessive focus on rate can interfere with, rather than augment, comprehension. A slower reading rate is sometimes necessary to support the construction of meaning. Fluency is a factor in both oral
and silent reading that can limit or support comprehension.
