          It what ways would you modify it, since you are familiar with the rubric.

        Laura, that is a great idea. I had thought to use people other than my students reading because I didn't want to embarrass anyone. Is that something I can get online or do you have a copy of it?

          Rachel--just google Rasinski's Four Point Fluency Rubric.
