Leveled Literacy Intervention (LLI)
At St Pius X we provide a supplementary intervention program designed to support reading and writing – Levelled Literacy Intervention (Fountas and Pinnell). This program is offered in addition to the classroom instruction and is implemented in a small group scenario. The focus of the lessons is to develop a deep comprehension of texts and to develop writing strategies. The program has been offered to students across Years 2 – 6 since 2016 and has been successful in significantly improving the reading and writing skills of the students who have participated. From 2017 the Levelled Literacy Intervention strategies are central to the Prep- Year 6 Reading Program at St Pius X as the teaching strategies and resources effectively target the needs of individual children to improve reading abilities. All children within each year level have successfully achieved excelled reading abilities with an average of 18mths growth.
