About This Book

Literacy is a skill for all time, for all people. It is an integral part of our lives, whether we are students or adult professionals. Giving all educators the breadth of knowledge and practical tools that help students strengthen their literacy skills is the focus of Read, Write, Lead.

Drawing on her experience as a mentor teacher, reading specialist, instructional coach, and staff developer, author Regie Routman offers time-tested advice on how to develop a schoolwide learning culture that leads to more effective reading and writing across the curriculum. 

She explains how every school—including yours—can

  • Implement instructional practices that lead to better engagement and achievement in reading and writing for all students, from kindergarten through high school, including second-language and struggling learners.
  • Build Professional Literacy Communities of educators working together to create sustainable school change through professional learning based on shared beliefs.
  • Reduce the need for intervention through daily practices that ensure success, even for our most vulnerable learners.
  • Embed the language of productive feedback in responsive instruction, conferences, and observations in order to accelerate learning for students, teachers, and leaders.

In their own voices, teachers, principals, literacy specialists, and students offer real-life examples of changes that led to dramatic improvement in literacy skills andperhaps just as importantincreased joy in teaching and learning. 

Scattered throughout the book are "Quick Wins"—ideas and actions that can yield positive, affirming results while tackling the tough work of long-term change.
