Fountas & Pinnell Classroom: Spotlight on Midway Independent School District
The educators at Midway Independent School District sought an alternative method of literacy instruction beyond a traditional reading program, but their experience with Fountas & Pinnell Classroom™ (FPC) since 2018 has surpassed their expectations. Teachers have received a newfound confidence in their approach to literacy from the rich materials and scaffolded instruction of FPC. Beyond a new level of competency in literacy as measured through assessments and report cards, FPC has influenced the culture at Midway ISD, turning reluctant students into avid readers. A full spectrum of students have received a new level of support in their journey to read, including populations such as economically disadvantaged students, special education students, and advanced students.
