Throughout this past year, Jan has been working closely with Michele Dufresne, the literacy consultant at the helm of Pioneer Valley Books. Jan and Michele, in partnership with Pioneer Valley Books, have developed Literacy Footprints - a complete Guided Reading System which includes an array of books from the Pioneer Valley collection. Each of the kits features sequenced, high-quality leveled texts in a variety of genres. Students will encounter traditional tales, realistic fiction, fantasy and informational texts. Each book is paired with a lesson plan, aligned with the concepts in The Next Step for Guided Reading. To learn more about Literacy Footprints, and to see videos of the system in action, visit the Literacy Footprints website.
