The Fountas & Pinnell Literacy Continuum: Expanded Edition is the newest edition of the beloved Continuum of Literacy Learning resource by best-selling literacy authors and educators, Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell.

There has never been a more comprehensive resource available to teachers that does what the continuum does - provide specific behaviors and understandings that are required at each level for students to demonstrate thinking within, beyond, and about the text. These behaviors and understandings describe what students will be expected to do in order to effectively read and understand the text. More in-depth, more intuitive, and more essential than ever—The Fountas & Pinnell Literacy Continuum, Expanded Edition enables teachers to construct a common vision for student achievement that effectively and efficiently engages all students in the robust, authentic and meaningful literacy learning every child deserves.

This new expanded edition boasts:

  • Improved organisation
  • Accessible 4-colour design
  • Streamlined navigation

This book contains seven continua. Each continuum focuses on an area of the language arts curriculum. Six continua provide grade level expectations and are designed for planning group instruction. The seventh, the Guided Reading continuum, is organised according to the Fountas and Pinnell Text Level Gradient™ and correlates directly with the Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System levels and the Fountas and Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention Systems.

The continua provide specific descriptions of the texts that students read, listen to, write, and perform. In addition, each continuum lists specific behaviours and understandings that are required at each level for students to demonstrate thinking within, beyond, and about the text. These behaviours and understandings describe what students will be expected to do in order to effectively read and understand the text.

The Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention System (LLI) is an intensive, small-group, supplementary literacy intervention for students who find reading and writing difficult. The goal of LLI is to lift the literacy achievement of students who are not achieving grade-level expectations in reading. The LLI systems are designed to:

 

  • Advance the literacy learning of students not meeting grade-level expectations in reading
  • Deepen and expand comprehension with close reading
  • Elevate the expertise of teachers
  • Increase reading volume by engaging students in large amounts of successful daily reading
  • Increase student engagement with books that build knowledge
  • Intervene with small groups of struggling readers to maximise growth
  • Meet the needs of struggling readers
  • Monitor student progress.
