Building Background Knowledge Through Wide Reading: A Five-Step Process

Robert Marzano

A few weeks back, I was talking about reading fluency and reading for understanding. I refered to how the two are not the same thing at all. Research says that if a student can read fluently that they have a better chance of understanding what they are reading. But if you want to make sure, then you need to use a best teaching practice to reinforce reading for understanding. This PD training video is just one technique that could be used to develop these skills.
