Fountas and Pinnell developed an indispensable instructional tool to support all teachers in their work with readers. This workshop series will dissect this tool so teachers may: 1) develop a theory of the reading process; 2) acquire a detailed lens for assessing students; and, 3) plan and deliver responsive lessons that will propel readers forward.

 



SESSION TOPICS

Day 1: Introduction–Systems of Strategic Actions and Leveled Text Characteristics

  • What are the strategic actions?
  • How do readers combine different strategic actions into a system to create personal meaning?
  • What are the ten characteristics of any text?
  • How do the ten characteristics differ across text levels?
  • How do I use miscue analysis to develop an understanding of readers’ systems of strategic action?

Day 2: Word Solving Systems–Preparing Before Reading, Repairing During Reading

  • Using a reader’s writing-about-reading samples to inventory their word solving systems.
  • Matching texts to readers to support strengthening a reader’s word solving system.
  • Pre-reading strategies to support effective word solving during reading.
  • Prompting during reading to support effective word solving.

Day 3: Systems of Strategic Action for Thinking within and Beyond the Text

  • Using miscue analysis to assess a reader’s thinking within the text.
  • Using a comprehension conversation to assess a reader’s thinking beyond the text.
  • Demonstration lessons to strengthen and expand systems of strategic action
  • Conferring with readers to strengthen and expand systems of strategic action – Individual Conferences, Small Group Conferences.
  • Student-led book discussions after reading to strengthen and expand systems of strategic action.
