This January 2008 webcast is a follow-up to the September 2007 webcast, “From Assessment to Practice: Research-Based Approaches to Teaching Reading to Adults.” This webcast presents instructional strategies for teaching fluency and vocabulary skills to adult education students that are grounded in reading research. The panelists also discuss how all four components of reading can provide a natural framework for assessing adult students’ reading ability, and how assessment results can be used to design a program of instruction to improve adult students’ reading abilities.

Benefits and Uses: 
This webcast is the second of two webinars that focus on how the four components of reading can be used to assess adult students' reading ability, and how assessment results can be used to design a program of instruction to improve reading skills. This webinar focuses on fluency and vocabulary instruction and provides research-based assessment and instructional practices to teach reading to adult learners. This webinar would be most useful to teachers, program administrators, and professional developers who are interested in research-based assessment and teaching strategies to improve reading instruction for adult learners.
