EO 03 – Teaching Readers and Writers

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.

In tonight’s conversation, Regie Routman, Allison Tucker, Darlene Tilley and Stephen Hurley talk about the importance of nurturing a deep connection between reading and writing in the classroom. Regie’s reminder that we teach readers and writers and not “reading” and “writing” will certainly resonate.
