Summer is approaching, and book studies are on the brain. Stenhouse would like to help you choose the books that will boost your professional learning in a meaningful way, and get you excited to get into the classroom next year to put what you’ve learned into action.
Here are two literacy titles you can add to your list along with their accompanying Study Guides!
Create a School-Wide Culture of Life-Long Learners
Literacy Essentials by Regie Routman isn’t just about literacy. It is about creating a culture in your school that fosters achievement for all students, equally. It is about finding the essential elements that make literacy education thrive, while building a community of life-long learners through the cultivation of kindness, trust, respect, and curiosity. It is a resource, a tool, a guide, and a teacher’s companion to engagement, excellence, and equity for ALL learners. You owe it to yourself and your colleagues to get this book!
