Reading Essentials

The Specifics You Need to Teach Reading Well

by Regie Routman

What does it mean to be an effective teacher of reading? Good teaching doesn’t have to mean lots of hours spent planning. Instead, it requires lots of thinking—thinking about what matters to kids, what kids need to know, how we can move them forward, and how to ensure that they comprehend and enjoy what they read. Practical, philosophical, and political, this upbeat easy-to-read book is full of research-based strategies, immediately doable ideas, and professional common sense. It’s about what it means to teach reading well to all students, including those who struggle.In Reading Essentials, Regie Routman gets to the heart of what effective reading instruction is all about and puts the fun back into teaching.
