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 how The Continuum can be used to set goals for learning in planning lessons for individuals, small groups, and the whole class. You will create a reading and writing unit of study. A basis for the three workshop model will be discussed, and how to use The Continuum to create them.


  • Apply a bank of learner outcomes for daily mini-lessons and conferring sessions in Reading and Writing Workshop.
  • Create individualized word work / word study per guided reading level.
  • Using these curricular contexts to Maximize Your Language / Word Study Workshop:
  • Interactive Read Aloud

Who should attend?

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.
