Abstract

This capstone was a content analysis of a commonly-used reading instruction program in the United States. A systematic analysis of character representations of gender, race/ethnicity, and disability was completed to examine the diversity within the Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention program. The results of this analysis found that one of the most commonly-used instructional reading programs does not accurately or proportionally portray the diversity in today’s classrooms. Data was collected about the character representations of gender, race/ethnicity, and disability. The analysis of the data suggested that there was a lack of representation in some of these populations when compared to United States statistics.
