Engagement: Story 5 – Feeling Smart

By Regie Routman

Literacy Essentials by Regie Routman contains some wonderfully personal stories from the author's own lived experience as a devoted family member, friend, and educator. In this series, Regie narrates each of these stories and, in doing so, invites us to reflect on our own literacy and learning lives.

This story traces the journey of a learner-teacher who went from a compliant and complacent learner to an actively questioning, competent one.
