Fountas & Pinnell
leveled literacy intervention
Who are Fountas and Pinnell?
-Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell both worked in Reading Recovery and in 1996 started working on their own literacy program. They knew "it was essential to match books to readers and to provide differentiated instruction through working with small groups in reading" (Fountas, 1. and Pinnel, G. S., 2012).
-Still adding, changing, and makig better today
This program is designed for mainly small group. Its intention is to find areas of trouble early before they become significant problems. Independent and instructional reading levels are determined. When a problem is found, there are techniques used in order to help that specific problem.

-"Students serviced with LLI grew, on average, 3.4 benchmark levels in reading. Students who
were not serviced with LLI grew, on average, 1.7 benchmark levels in reading" Odell (2012)
-based off schools in GA and NY, after 38 days kindergartners exposed went up 1.56 benchmark levels, not exposed 0.78, fewer gains seen with DIBELS (Ransford-Kaldon, 2010)
-South Carolina 105 second graders BELOW reading level, after 18 weeks 66% were reading at a 2nd grade level
-Atlantic City (including ELLs) 337 students 3% not at grade level, after 45% at grade level (gains in word recognition, letter naming, and decoding) (Heinemann, 2003)
Theory: Constructivism
".... students learn best from
figuring things out themselves
from reading, rather than from the explicit instruction a teacher might provide....In their plan, much of the teacher’s work is devoted to accomplishing an appropriate placement of students in texts" (Shanahan, 2012).
-the books gradually get harder, allowing students to enjoy the reading they are doing
-some mini lessons but less direct instruction
bring students up to grade level reading in 14 to 18 weeks
