Jan Hasbrouck coming to Australia

Internationally renowned expert on reading fluency, Dr Jan Hasbrouck is coming to Australia in March for a series of workshops:

9th March - Perth

18th March - Melbourne

20th March - Brisbane

23rd March - Sydney

The U. S. National Reading Panel report identified fluency as “a critical component of skilled reading…often neglected in classroom instruction.” Educators everywhere took note, and as a result reading fluency is now a BIG part of teaching and assessing: but it is widely misunderstood. Dr Jan Hasbrouck's workshops will provide an updated and functional definition of reading fluency and will also clarify the role of curriculum-based measures of oral reading fluency (ORF), often used to screen students and monitor their overall progress in reading. What do these measures really tell us and how should they be used appropriately? The updated compiled ORF norms will be discussed. Research-supported fluency instruction strategies will also be addressed. These sessions will provide an opportunity to reflect on how fluency supports comprehension and how it should fit into a comprehensive and effective reading program for all students.

Dr Jan Hasbrouck will also be a keynote presenter at the Science of Learning National Summit in Hobart from 24th to 26th March.

Jan Hasbrouck has a brand new book, Climbing The Ladder of Reading & Writing which is hot off the press. Silvereye are distributing this book and several of Jan's other books in Australia.
