LLI 3-12

Intervening for Literacy Success with Intermediate, Middle, and Secondary Students, Grades 3–12 (Levels L-Z / Red, Gold, Purple, and Teal)

Developed by Irene C. Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell
Presented by Fountas and Pinnell-endorsed Consultants

Special Note: A consecutive institute is being held for grades K-2. Please see LLI Systems Grades K-2 (Orange, Green, and Blue) for details on this additional event.

The Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention System (LLI) for grades 3-12 is a small-group, supplementary research-based intervention system designed for students who find reading and writing difficult. LLI can bring students to grade-level proficiency in as little as 18-24 weeks for LLI grades 3–12 when implemented with fidelity.

In this interactive two-day institute, participants will be provided with an understanding of the LLI Red, Gold, Purple, and Teal Systems for grades 3–12 and how they specifically meet the needs of struggling readers in those grades, and how to provide effective teaching within the LLI lessons. Participants will learn how to code and analyze reading behaviors, scheduling, student grouping, teacher language and supporting students’ sustained attention and comprehension of texts.

The lesson design for LLI Red, Gold, Purple, and Teal has been extended and intensified beyond the earlier LLI levels and assumes the following:

  • 45 minutes a day, 5 days a week
  • 4 students at a time
  • 18-24+ weeks of explicit, intensive instruction
