Overview

Over 60% of students in the US today struggle with reading according to the Nation's Report Card. This includes students who speak English as a second language, students with disabilities, and others who may have not yet mastered the skills necessary to become a fluent reader.

Join Jason Carroll as he demonstrates how you can use an awesome tool for Google to help your struggling students gain speed, accuracy, and confidence when reading. He will explain how Fluency Tutor gives you the ability to share supported reading passages with your students and provide feedback, while saving you valuable classroom time. You will learn how students can use it to create their own passages, hear passages read aloud, practice reading, and record assigned passages at school or home on Chromebooks, Android tablets, and more for free! In addition to showing how it integrates with Google Classroom, Jason will share other powerful tools for scoring and measuring progress that are also available.

Excellent presentation.

This was great, until you find out at the end that the best part of the app is not free! The premium features cost, and they aren't cheap. It will still be useful for recording and student practice.
 
Valuable tools: detail tracking, marking pronunciations, hesitation, and running records are good with self recording feature assist students with control.
 
Definitely will be using on read to self with fluency help.

Excellent information! I would love to hear how to add students to your class. And what's the lowest level reader that can use this?
