'Moskal and Blachowicz have created an accessible and informative text on fluency instruction. Not only does this book clearly explain what fluency is (and what it is not), it also provides practical ways to integrate fluency into the literacy curriculum and to assess student learning. Further, it presents unique instructional approaches involving student partners and the thoughtful use of volunteers. This is an ideal resource for teachers and curriculum coordinators as well as for courses focusing on primary-grades literacy development.' "- Melanie R. Kuhn, PhD, Graduate School of Education, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey"" " 'This is the book classroom teachers need to make sense of the multitude of data and directives regarding fluency. The authors cite applicable research, offer sensible approaches to assessment, and, finally, provide a veritable roadmap for classroom application that is manageable for teachers and engaging for students. A valuable text for preservice teachers as well as those preparing for roles in literacy leadership and coaching.' "- Ann Bates, EdD, National-Louis University"
