“Fluency” can mean a variety of things in the education world. We’ve heard of reading, writing, and math fluencies, all of which demonstrate proficiency in those subject areas. In fact, well into the 21st Century, the topics of focus in education remain reading, writing, and math, sometimes known as the 3 “R’s.”
Those topics are necessary and foundational to anyone communicating in and navigating the world. I challenge you to think about this: do you move through the world where you compartmentalize math, reading, or writing in, well, life? Likely not.
We see and interact with the world using skills like the 3 “R’s,” along with problem-solving, working with others, and understanding how to discover and apply accurate information. Students will need to apply these skills for their future success. Like reading, writing, and math these skills are noted as fluencies – topics requiring proficiency for success.
