Responsive Literacy

The six color-coded sections of this book represent the essential components of responsive literacy organized around a comprehensive framework: professional learning, organizing for learning, reading, writing, building blocks of language, and learning community. The colors for each section are then echoed on the edge of the pages so you can find topics easily.

Our goal was to create a reader-friendly book brimming with illustrative photographs, easy-to-navigate charts, and essential understandings to support professional learning and student achievement.

While there is a logical sequence to this book, you can also study sections one at a time depending on your needs and interests.
