Meet ASCD Author Regie Routman
Regie Routman is a longtime teacher, author, and speaker who is committed to improving the literacy and learning lives of children, especially those in high-challenge schools.
Her current work involves weeklong school residencies where she demonstrates effective reading and writing practices in diverse classrooms, coaches teachers and principals, and facilitates ongoing professional conversations, all as a catalyst for sustainable, whole-school change.
Routman's experiences as a classroom teacher, Reading Recovery teacher, language arts coach, and staff developer led her to see schoolwide collaboration and high-level, professional learning as a necessity for increasing and sustaining achievement. As a result, Routman created the residency model where she mentors an entire school to increase engagement, enjoyment, and literacy achievement for all learners.
Regie Routman's recent ASCD work is Read, Write, Lead: Breakthrough Strategies for Schoolwide Literacy Success.
