Literacy Essentials: The Stories
written and told 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.

You’ll learn how to take explicit actions to create and sustain a thriving, intellectual school culture where all learners succeed and are prepared to take their place in the world as knowledgeable, activist citizens—starting in kindergarten. Most of all, you’ll learn what each of us can and must do to ensure an equitable, enjoyable, and excellent education for every student.
