Clip to ScrapBook #3

According to the 95% training that we received, a student who reads fast and accurate should be comprehending. If they are not comprehending then some sort of nonsense word fluency assessments should be done. It is possible that he/she has great site word recognition but not decoding. If the assessment shows that they need some sort of decoding then you would need to start there before you can work on slowing down or comprehension. If there isn't any decoding problems then you would possibly need to try working on reading with expression and comprehension strategies. I hope that helps. I am new to 95% so hope I didn't botch up what I learned.
