The Fountas and Pinnell Prompting Guides, Part 1 and Part 2 will be used as a guide for our work. The guide is designed to provide language and actions that support the reader’s construction of an efficient network of strategic activities for processing text and writing stories. Participants will receive an overview of how to observe and record reading behaviors, however, most of our time will be spent practicing how to analyze and interpret these records. As part of this series, time is included to administer assessments to students in your classroom/building, observe and record reading behaviors, and develop next-step teaching strategies. The intended audience for this series are teams of classroom teachers and certified reading interventionists working with grades K-2.
