NEW! Alignment of Common Core State Standards and The Fountas & Pinnell Literacy Continuum, Expanded Edition


This document is organized to show the close connection between each of the continua in The Fountas & Pinnell Literacy Continuum and the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy.


Both the Standards and The Literacy Continuum aim to take the complex work of reading, writing, and communication, and provide descriptions of what students will know and be able to do. They also acknowledge the fact that engaging in authentic literacy experiences can address multiple areas of literacy and language learning. Both resources stress the importance of engaging with a variety of increasingly complex texts, in multiple genres to grow capacity as readers, writers, and communicators. The Standards and The Literacy Continuum both also note that student learning is expected to grow over time, with students holding on to understandings and building upon them.
