PREVIOUSLY RECORDED WEBINAR SERIES:

Overview

Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ is a first-of-its-kind, cohesive system for high-quality classroom-based literacy instruction. This new system, developed by master educators and best-selling authors, Irene C. Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell, is designed to change the landscape of reading instruction and to ensure the right of every student to lead a literate life. In this four-part webinar series, Fountas and Pinnell-trained consultant, Chrisie Moritz, will present a vision for lifting students' literacy learning through authentic experiences in reading, thinking, talking, and writing. Throughout the interactive sessions, participants will learn how the instructional contexts of Interactive Read-Aloud, Reading Minilessons, Shared Reading, Phonics/Spelling/Word Study, Guided Reading, Book Clubs, Independent Reading and Conferring, and Writing About Reading work together to develop coherence in the literacy learning of every student across the grades.

During this series, participants will:

  • develop an understanding of reading as a complex process
  • use The Fountas & Pinnell Literacy Continuum as a tool for observing students and identifying teaching goals
  • develop an understanding of the need for and strength of whole-class, small-group, and individualized instruction
  • explore considerations for establishing an organized learning environment and building a community of readers
  • explore the instructional contexts that comprise Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™.
