The Regie Routman Series

Full Description

Regie Routman's Transforming our Teaching series is designed to be help principals, coaches, and teachers replicate and apply the instructional moves, thinking, language, and ongoing assessment that lead to increased and sustainable achievement and enjoyment, across the curriculum.

Reading to Understand, 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:

  • Establish reading routines, including selection of "just right" books
  • Teach and manage guided reading groups
  • Increase comprehension of literary and informational texts
  • Confer effectively one-on-one with students
  • Use shared reading, monitored independent reading, literature conversations, and other research-based techniques to ensure all students become self-directed readers
  • Align best practices with the Common Core State Standards
