Where other assessment and benchmark systems leave you wondering "Now what?" Fountas and Pinnell provide a link from assessment to instruction via classroom practices such as guided reading and read-aloud. Their professional book “The Continuum of Literacy Learning: A Guide to Teaching” is included with the Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System and provides the basis for this workshop. Drawing from this important resource, the workshop provides an introduction to The Continuum and how it can be used to set goals for learning in planning lessons for individuals, small groups, and the whole class. Discover how The Continuum can be used as a bridge in connecting your assessment date and your instruction, as well as how it can serve as a guide for evaluating student progress over time, helping you identify the specific areas in which students need help.


  • Learn how to use The Continuum to help choose appropriate texts for readers across grades and instructional contexts through text analysis  and an understanding of text characteristics.
  • Explore the behaviors and understandings to notice, teach, and support   in getting students to think within, beyond, and about text and how these understandings shift over time.
  • Apply The Continuum to student work to expand their knowledge of the behaviors and understandings they want to support in reading and writing.
  • Explore how to support writers in developing skills and strategies in the areas of craft, conventions and the process of writing.

Who should attend?
K-8 Classroom Teachers, Reading Specialists, Curriculum Coordinators, and Principals.

Please bring with you to the workshop: 
The Continuum of Literacy Learning: A Guide to Teaching for K-8 or PreK-8.


CESA 6 makes every effort to accommodate basic dietary needs such as vegetarian, gluten free and basic food allergies. Because of the number of meals served and the number of items used each day, along with food product changes from our food vendors, we cannot guarantee that every allergen in the food served will be identified and labeled. Guests concerned with food allergies must be aware of this risk. CESA 6 does not assume liability for adverse reactions to food consumed or items one may come into contact with while eating at a CESA 6 event. To better serve our guests with dietary restrictions or allergies, please go into your myQuickReg account and update the special accommodations section. Notice of a special dietary need must be made in advance of the event.
