Fountas & Pinnell Classroom: Reading Minilessons




Reading Minilessons are short, concise, purposeful lessons with a practical application in a specific area of literacy. Each minilesson engages children in inquiry that leads to the discovery of understanding of a general principle.

Participants in this workshop will learn more about the values of this powerful instructional context. Participants will learn how to use The Reading Minilessons Book to engage children’s thinking through high-quality texts.

Participants will:

  • Consider the values and characteristics of reading minilessons
  • Become familiar with The Reading Minilessons Book
  • Develop an understanding of reading as a complex process
  • Develop an understanding of the systems of strategic actions that support effective thinking within, beyond, and about texts
  • Understand the structure of umbrellas and minilessons
  • Explore the different types of minilessons: management, literacy analysis, strategies and skills, and writing about reading
  • Understand how to assess and plan reading minilessons
    The Reading Minilessons Book, for any grade level, is required for all participants.
