BRI's Module 5: Structured Literacy: Fluency, Assessment, and Intervention

BRI's Module 5: Structured Literacy: Fluency, Assessment, and Intervention

Designed for K-3 educators, this collection of modules addresses the following objectives:

  • Foster a deep understanding of each of the five components of reading recognized by the National Reading Panel and how they form a comprehensive and integrated approach to reading instruction.
  • Equip teachers with practical tools and resources that are aligned to the science of literacy acquisition and readily accessed and applied in the K-3 setting.
  • Demonstrate the use of assessments and their results to guide instruction for each of the five components of reading plus the three additional skills (oral language, print awareness, and written expression) that support literacy proficiency.
  • Facilitate adult learning through strategies that allow teachers to access information previously learned and to apply new knowledge and resources to strengthen practice.

In Module 5, participants will:
  • Define what fluency is and identify its key characteristics.
  • Explain why accuracy is as important as fluency, especially in early grades.

  • Understand the Tiers of Intervention.
  • Revisit the SVR to Determine Lowest Deficit Skill.
  • Learn to Calculate Annual Growth vs. Catch-Up Growth.
