Emily Butler Smith

Emily Butler Smith (EdD) is the Associate Director for Professional Development at the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project. Emily’s research interests have focused on reading–writing connections and content literacy. As part of her doctoral work at Teachers College, Emily became a resident researcher in an inclusive third grade classroom, tracking the development of a few writers across a semester, in particular analyzing ways in which their study of mentor texts lifted the level of their writing and their understandings of writing. Emily leads an ongoing collaboration between the TCRWP and The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation devoted to the teaching of history and literacy. Emily draws on all of this in her staff development work across the US and internationally.
