Access the Power of the Reading-Writing Connection in Your K–1 Literacy Approach

In this single-session course, learn how master teacher and best-selling author Regie Routman demonstrates what kindergarten students are capable of as independent readers, writers, and thinkers. Observe on video how Regie uses stories from the children’s lives as a springboard for leading scaffolded conversations to personally engage students and extend their language skills, to model concepts about print and teach skills in context, and to raise literacy expectations. Observe also how it’s possible, as one teacher, to conduct one-on-one roving, writing conferences with every student in the classroom.

Course Objectives

  • Use literature as a springboard for shared experiences
  • Show how shared writing can be used to create multiple texts for reading
  • Help students make personal connections with the texts they write and read
  • Observe how to teach students to tell and write a continuous story over time
  • Learn to support students in narrowing a topic with elaboration and detail — even if they don’t know all their letters and sounds.

This is a Single-Session On-Demand Course. You can also consider enrolling in Regie Routman’s four-session On-Demand Mini-Course Transforming Our Teaching Through Reading to Understand.
