You have two  for this discussion posting:

  •  1: In this discussion posting, describe some challenges of fluency instruction. Use the text as a source of evidence for your thinking. In addition, you must refer to another text besides your textbook to support your thinking.  
  •  2: On page 268, Rasinski and Padak (2013) write, “The entire class reads the text chorally several times. The teacher creates variety by having students read different verses or portions of the texts in groups.”  Choral reading is when students read the same text at the same time out loud. Read this web article for more information about choral reading. Choral reading is a preferable strategy to popcorn reading, or round robin reading; which is deemed as ineffective by many reading experts and reading teachers.
