Defining Reading

Defining Reading

Transacting with a text, both the author and the reader come out differently in the end. Reading is about making meaning, not just decoding.

Fluency: we need to redefine what fluency means. It’s not about how fast one reads but also the comprehension, inflection. Programs like Reading Street and DIBLES focus on how fast one reads.

We are conditioned to believe that if we repeat words when reading aloud then we aren’t good readers. This isn’t the case. It’s a strategy that good readers use to make sure they’re making meaning.
