The Regie Routman Series

Full Description

Regie Routman's Transforming our Teaching series is designed to be a virtual companion and explicit, easy-to-use guide for principals, coaches, and teachers seeking to embed ongoing school-wide professional development focused on excellent literacy practices, classroom-based assessment, and implementation of the Common Core State Standards.

Writing for Audience and Purpose, one of three programs in the series, includes a full year of professional development sessions–14 in all–that works with and augments any existing curriculum and resources. Each session includes a detailed agenda for facilitators and extensive video (typically 30 minutes per session) of Regie teaching in diverse, authentic classroom settings. In each video, Regie provides insightful voice-over observations and analysis. Teachers report that watching the videos gives them the practical knowledge and "big picture" of classroom teaching that one-shot professional development programs often lack.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Teach writing using a process that can be applied to any curriculum area
  • Demonstrate the process of writing and revising as a non-linear process
  • Teach students to write in any genre
  • Celebrate students' writing through public, whole-class conferences
  • Teach revision and editing so students become self-directed
  • Assess student writing and give useful feedback
  • Align best practices with the Common Core State Standards

This online-only version of the program includes:

  • A 25-person site license for unlimited lifetime access to the Reading to Understand program resources on the Regie Routman in Residence website (password-protected)
  • More than 50 videos of Regie demonstrating her teaching techniques, complete with voice-over analysis (Windows, Mac, and iPad-compatible)
  • Complete downloadable session materials for facilitators and teachers
  • Hundreds of downloadable readings, student work samples, and handouts for participants

The online version does not include the Professional Development Notebooks. The Professional Development Notebooks, which provide essential professional reading and point-by-point analysis of the video sessions, can be purchased separately. Users of the online version of Writing For Audience & Purposes are also encouraged to purchase one copy per person (or one copy for every two teachers) of Regie's Teaching Essentials, Reading Essentials, and Writing Essentials.
