The Fountas & Pinnell Literacy Continuum, Expanded Edition is a tool for assessment, planning, and teaching for grades PreK–8.
There has never been a more comprehensive resource available to teachers that does what The Literacy Continuum does - provide specific behaviors and understandings that are required at each grade and text 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, write and understand the text.
The Literacy Continuum is a foundation for setting clear learning goals and planning specific lessons for students based on those goals.
