Recent surveys of reading experts indicate that fluency is not viewed as an important competency in reading. Based on his own work with young and adolescent readers, Dr. Tim Rasinski asserts that reading fluency is indeed a critical and necessary competency for reading at every grade level and that many students who struggle in reading are not sufficiently fluent.
