Quick Reads



What is fluency? Author Elfrieda “Freddy” Hiebert says it’s “not speed reading.” Hiebert observes: “What we’re talking about is getting kids to read at rates where they’re not thinking about the words they’re decoding.” QuickReads is a supplemental literacy intervention program that improves students’ fluency, comprehension, and content knowledge. Short, nonfiction texts are read quickly, repeatedly, and meaningfully. The instructional routine takes just 15 minutes a day, 3 to 4 times per week, so it’s easy to fit QuickReads into your curriculum. Use the program with at-risk students, English language learners, and for tutoring. It’s perfect for an after school or summer school program too. Grade 2-6
