Where other assessment and benchmark systems leave you wondering “Now what?” or “What does this mean for my teaching?” Fountas and Pinnell provide a link from assessment to instruction via The Fountas & Pinnell Literacy Continuum: A Tool for Assessment, Planning, and Teaching, PreK-8. The Literacy Continuum describes text characteristics and behavioral goals for prekindergarten through grade 8, across the areas pertinent to the language arts. Drawing from this important resource, this professional learning opportunity provides an introduction in how to use The Literacy Continuum to plan for whole class, small group and individual instruction.

PARTICIPANTS WILL: • Explore the eight continua included in The Literacy Continuum: Interactive Read-Aloud and Literature Discussion, Shared and Performance Reading, Writing About Reading, Writing, Oral and Visual Communication, Technological Communication, Phonics Spelling and Word Study, and Guided Reading • Apply The Literacy Continuum to student work and assessment data to inform instruction in reading and writing • Explore how to support writer’s development in the areas of craft, conventions and the process of writing • Learn how to use The Literacy Continuum as a bridge to connect assessment data from the Benchmark Assessment to instruction as well as monitoring student progress over time.
