Automaticity -- Literacy A-Z
Automaticity Reading automaticity refers to the ability to engage and coordinate a host of reading skills and strategies with little effort. Automaticity is exemplified when a reader picks up a book and reads the words without conscious attention to the word structure in an engaging, meaningful way. When students achieve automaticity, it frees cognitive resources that enable them to process the text for meaning. Automaticity is achieved through corrected and sustained practice.
