Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell bring more than twenty-five years of research and classroom observation of literacy development to the timely expansion and completion of the Continuo de la lectoescritura, Grados PreK–8. More in-depth and more intuitive than ever, Continuo de la lectoescritura is a tool to guide assessment, activate responsive teaching, and support Spanish-speaking students’ language and literacy growth.
Working in close collaboration with Eduardo Aparicio and a team of bilingual literacy experts, Fountas and Pinnell have expanded and completed the Continuo de la lectoescritura, Grados PreK–8 and text levels A–Z.
In it, they combine everything they have learned about the development of readers, writers, and language users to create a comprehensive curriculum document as an assessment tool and as a guide for teaching.
Now, with the flip of a page, you can quickly identify the literacy goals appropriate to each grade level, PreK–8, and each text level, A–Z, and determine the specific competencies Spanish-speaking students’ have achieved.
This resource provides a vision of what Spanish-speaking students need to be able to do as competent readers, writers, and language users, and informs every aspect of literacy teaching. The Continuo de la lectoescritura, Grados PreK–8 is designed to elevate language and literacy expertise, develop an understanding of the demands of texts on readers, and create a common vision and common language for literacy. www.Heinemann.com
