In our building, every teacher has a copy of the Continuum of Literacy Learning from BAS 1st or 2nd edition. Our district would like to use this more intensely to set goals for learning. What would be the benefits of everyone having the new Literacy Continuum?

The basic descriptions of text characteristics and behaviors and understandings are still there, but the descriptions are more precise. It’s easier on the eyes and arranged in a way that you can spend less time thinking about where on the Systems of Strategic Actions your student’s behaviors lie, and spend more time knowing how to instruct them. The key differences are:
· Streamlined organization
· Expanded behaviors and examples across the continua
· First appearance of a behavior or goal or text characteristic is indicated by a red bullet [behaviors are acquired a nd then elaborated over time]
· Clear organization of and explicit links to the Systems of Strategic Actions
· Four-color design for clarity and focus

If everyone has the same resource it makes it easier for conversations to occur since everyone is looking at the same language on the same page. A digital version is available if that makes it easier than having paper copies.
