Literacy Essentials

Engagement, excellence, and equity for all learners

How do we ensure that all students are engaged each day in meaningful, challenging, and joyful work and have equal opportunity to learn?

That is the central question Regie Routman addresses in Literacy Essentials: Engagement, Excellence, and Equity for All Learners.  Her response is that such an outcome is only possible within a culture of empowerment in which all students and teachers feel encouraged and supported to let their voices be heard, explore their passions and interests, develop deep knowledge, and become their fullest and truest selves.

Based on her ongoing teaching, leading, and coaching in diverse schools and districts, Regie offers K-12 teachers and leaders practical, easy-to-implement tools to help students develop as self-determining readers, writers, and learners including:

  • Take Action sections with specific suggestions for authentically teaching, assessing, and learning
  • Extensive research that is easily accessible and actionable
  • Personal stories that connect to literacy teaching and learning
  • Rich online resources including a comprehensive lesson plan, an easy-to-use study guide, downloadable Appendices, and more.

Literacy Essentials shows what’s possible when teachers and schools raise expectations for all students and create an intellectual culture based on trust, collaborative expertise, and celebration of learners’ strengths.
