David Didau's ppt. slides on 'The Importance of Reading Fluency'.
''The biggest invisible barrier to academic success is a lack of reading fluency. The DfE estimate that 20% of children leave primary school unable to fluently decode and are, therefore, unable to access an academic curriculum. But because almost no schools measure reading fluency, they have no idea whether students are capable of being academically successful'' (David Didau)

David Didau explains ‘Why we need to read aloud’ to our primary and secondary age pupils (video and ppt slides)
