Reading is a highly complex activity. Readers must build strategies and create behaviors as they move to increasingly difficult texts. How can schools support this process and teach self-sufficiency as readers progress? 

Join literacy leaders Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell, creators of the F&P Text Level Gradientâ„¢, for an important conversation about leveling, libraries, reading comprehension, and what they say to districts mandating leveled collections.


  • Irene Fountas, Professor in the School of Education at Lesley University
