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 (BAS) and provides the basis for this workshop. Creating a clear and articulate curriculum will be the focus for day one.

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 whole class instruction. The Continuum… can also be a tool in creating Reading and Writing Units of Study. Instruction in developing these units will be the day two focus.


 

OBJECTIVES

Participants will:

  • Explore behaviors and understandings to notice, teach, and support students to think within, beyond, and about the 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.
  • Apply a bank of learner outcomes for daily mini-lessons and conferring sessions in Reading and Writing Workshop.
  • Create a Language and Word Study sample curriculum.
