Responsive Teaching with Fountas and Pinnell Literacy

The need for responsive teaching has never been greater. Children are returning to school (either in-class or virtually) after an extended absence due to COVID-19. They have missed the support, rigor, and community of their classroom for far too long and need to get back to learning.

Before COVID, thousands of Canadian teachers chose Fountas & Pinnell Literacy (FPL) resources as the cornerstone of their literacy program. They use…

  • Benchmark Assessment System (BAS) to deeply understand their students’ abilities and instructional needs.
  • The Fountas & Pinnell Literacy Continuum to chart their students’ paths forward.
  • Fountas & Pinnell Classroom (FPC) to deliver focused and responsive teaching in a variety of whole-class, small group, and independent instructional contexts.
  • Levelled Literacy Intervention (LLI) to help students get past any challenges in their learning.

In this webinar, we’ll explore the resources in Fountas & Pinnell Literacy. You’ll learn about the assessments, teaching, and intervention resources available and get a snapshot of how they are used in the classroom (both the current COVID Classroom and after when things return to a more normal classroom environment).

During the session, we’ll be giving away 10 copies of The Literacy Quick Guide: A Reference Tool for Responsive Teaching. Participate in this session for a chance to win one of these concise and information-packed guides (a value of $35.00).

Efficient and Informative Conferences using Benchmark Assessment System

This session provides an overview of The Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System (BAS). Using BAS to determine student independent and instructional reading levels, teachers are able to observe student reading behaviors one-on-one, engage in comprehension conversations that go beyond retelling, and make informed decisions that connect assessment to instruction. Participants in this session will learn how to administer, score, analyze, and interpret results from the BAS System. The session leader will also highlight opportunities for using BAS with current classroom safety protocols and remote learning situations.

Session Goals:

  • Become familiar with the administration, scoring and analysis of BAS.
  • Explore how to use assessment data to inform instruction during whole class, small group and individual teaching opportunities.
  • Explore ways to use assessment results to group students and monitor student progress for change over time.

During the session, we’ll be giving away 10 copies of The Literacy Quick Guide: A Reference Tool for Responsive Teaching. Participate in this session for a chance to win one of these concise and information-packed guides (a value of $35.00).

Accelerate Growth for Struggling Readers using Levelled Literacy Intervention

Leveled Literacy Intervention provides effective small-group instruction for students who find reading and writing difficult. With engaging leveled books, fast-paced systematically designed lessons, and a high level of built-in professional development, LLI empowers both teachers and students as together they work toward attaining reading and writing proficiency.

This session provides an overview of the LLI Lesson Framework, assessing and grouping students, teaching within the LLI lessons, using the Prompting Guide, understanding the demands of texts, and documenting progress. In addition to learning how to implement LLI, participants will deepen their understanding of many research-based techniques to help struggling readers make accelerated progress.

Session Goals

  • Learn about the LLI components and the principles upon which they are based
  • Become familiar with the LLI lesson framework and learn how to teach each component of the lesson
  • View and discuss a set of core instructional routines
  • Analyze highly engaging and well-constructed fiction and nonfiction texts to interest and support young readers

During the session, we’ll be giving away 10 copies of The Literacy Quick Guide: A Reference Tool for Responsive Teaching. Participate in this session for a chance to win one of these concise and information-packed guides (a value of $35.00).
