The Reading Strategy Every English Learner Needs to Know (Step-by-Step Guide)
 
07:51
This lesson explains how you can improve your English through reading. This is a powerful method so be sure to watch the whole video! Get your fluency book here: https://www.tofluency.com/book (it's FREE to download!) Here is a question that a lot of learners struggle with: do you stop reading to look up the definition or just continue? This highlights the difference between: Intensive reading: when you read to learn new words and analyze the language. Extensive reading: where you don't stop and you read for pleasure. More on my reading for fluency method soon but first... HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BOOK FOR YOU: 1. The genre: the category. Choose books that interest you. 2. The level of the book: if it's too difficult to understand, you won't enjoy it and it won't help you. Choose graded readers. See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-o7DTuOYn0o 3. Books you enjoy: if you don't enjoy the book, put it down. FINDING BOOKS (GREAT TIP!) Go to https://www.amazon.com and "look inside" a book that you may enjoy. Start reading it and get it if you think it's appropriate. Find books with audiobooks too. INTENSIVE vs EXTENSIVE READING: I recommend that you do both. Here is how: 1. Read extensively but highlight words (sentences that you don't understand) 2. Do this for each chapter or for a certain number of pages 3. Go back and look up anything you don't understand BONUS TIP: Take the sentences that you have highlighted and use Anki - https://apps.ankiweb.net/ - to create flashcards. This is a way to internalize the new language and grammar. More on this here: https://www.tofluency.com/speaking/ - or get the premium method below. ENGLISH FLUENCY PROGRAM: My program gives you the method that will dramatically improve your speaking, grammar, and pronunciation and the materials you need to follow this method. This method works and if you are ready to FINALLY speak English with confidence, I would love to have you.

Q: How long have you been teaching? A: I've been teaching English since 2011. I ❤️ it! Q: How can I improve my English? A: Follow my method. I have a free lesson on that here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=grxHW6kDhiE Q: Do you have a book that I can download? A: Yes, I do.

Repeated Reading Routine for Fluency
 
10:33
Learn more about how you can implement this simple Re-Reading for Fluency Routine here: https://readingsimplified.com/repeated-reading-routine-for-fluency/ Sight words, (otherwise known as high-frequency sight words), are common words that kids are taught to read automatically at first sight without having to use any decoding strategies. As you can imagine, there are a lot of sight words. Since there’s no way to master sight words other than repeated reading and lots of practice, teaching kids all of the sight words takes time. But what if I told you there was a re-reading routine that has the power to double or even TRIPLE the words your kids learn in one week? In this blog post, I show you a Repeated Reading Routine that will help kids grasp sight words quicker, so they can memorize more words each week. On top of this, this re-reading routine will also help develop kids sight word knowledge, decoding skills, fluency, and comprehension. Find out about: • What high-frequency sight words are • Why repeated reading is so important • How to increase word identification and decoding during guided reading • The benefits of one-to-one coaching with the teacher during small group instruction • The importance of repetition and independent reading time • Techniques to support re-reading success • How to keep your students motivated about re-reading the same text • How to assess reading progress • Benefits of implementing this simple Repeated Reading Routine to increase word identification, fluency and comprehension Click here to learn more about the Re-Reading Routine for Fluency https://readingsimplified.com/repeated-reading-routine-for-fluency/

Reading Development Module 6: Reading Fluency
 
03:48
Stephanie Downey Toledo is a bilingual speech language pathologist in New York City as well as a professor at Teachers College, Columbia University. She has collaborated with the LEADERS project on this module series and others. Check them out on LEADERSproject.org! Fluency in reading refers to the ability to read a text accurately and quickly. It bridges decoding and comprehension. A student may "read" or decode quickly but have low comprehension. On the other hand, he or she may decode too slowly to comprehend the phrase. Fluency instruction should support a child's understanding of how punctuation and intonation affect comprehension. This module presents strategies to support the development of fluency in reading. Resources from this module: National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. (2000).
