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/Writing Connections, one of three programs in the series, includes more than 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 and discussing the videos gives them the practical knowledge and specifics of effective literacy teaching that makes application to daily teaching possible and likely.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Use reading to enhance writing and writing to enhance reading
  • Set up high-quality classroom libraries
  • Use authentic, relevant texts in the classroom, such as children's literary and informational texts, poetry, and book reviews
  • Use shared writing to encourage and honor all students’ voices and to create authentic text for writing and reading
  • Embed word work into daily reading and writing
  • Reach and teach struggling learners
  • Align best practices with the Common Core State Standards
