Regie Routman is a longtime teacher, author, and speaker who is committed to improving the literacy and learning lives of children, especially those in high-challenge schools.
Her current work involves weeklong school residencies where she demonstrates effective reading and writing practices in diverse classrooms, coaches teachers and principals, and facilitates ongoing professional conversations, all as a catalyst for sustainable, whole-school change.
Routman's experiences as a classroom teacher, Reading Recovery teacher, language arts coach, and staff developer led her to see schoolwide collaboration and high-level, professional learning as a necessity for increasing and sustaining achievement.
As a result, Routman created the residency model where she mentors an entire school to increase engagement, enjoyment, and literacy achievement for all learners.
Read, Write, Lead: Breakthrough Strategies for Schoolwide Literacy Success
Learn how to increase reading and writing achievement, engagement, and enjoyment for all students, including English language learners and students who struggle.
In this webinar, respected educator and ASCD author Regie Routman focuses on the content of her latest book, Read, Write, Lead, which is based on more than four decades of teaching, coaching, and mentoring teachers and principals in diverse schools.
Using classroom stories, photos, student work, current research, and her ongoing work in diverse classrooms, Routman discusses how and why teachers and leaders in schools must develop shared beliefs, apply an optimal learning model across the curriculum, and use the language of productive feedback to move learning forward—for both teachers and students.
The webinar highlights strategies for writing for authentic audiences and purposes, reading for enjoyment and understanding, embedding professional literacy communities into the daily life of the school, reducing the need for intervention, and connecting to Common Core State Standards' priorities.
