Course Description

Research continues to advance our understanding of the brain networks and processes involved in reading. However, understanding the relationships among brain networks, cognitive processes, and reading development can be a challenge.

This workshop will focus on a crucial challenge in elementary literacy education: how to help atypical readers achieve reading fluency in order to support comprehension. Participants will take away five teaching techniques for building fluency in several dimensions of literacy education.

Dr. Ashby will summarize what eye movement research tells us about the cognitive processes involved in fluent reading, and connect the development of the brain’s reading networks with gains in reading fluency. Teachers will learn how to apply these ideas to gauge the effectiveness of several widely used techniques for building reading fluency.

This symposium is partially underwritten by the Cynthia K. Hoehl Institute for Excellence.
