Read, Write, Lead: Chapter 5

More book study on Regie Routman's Read, Write, Lead ...

Chapter 5

Reminder: This year I'm in a book study focusing on Regie Routman's Read, Write, Lead with literacy specialists. I'm reflecting on them here. The ASCD created a study guide with thought-provoking questions. We were encouraged either to choose one question from guide and react, or to choose a resonating quote and explain why it struck us. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
"Self-reflect on the characteristics of leaders. Where are you strongest? What might you choose to work on to increase trust and professional relationships with your colleagues?"
I am strongest at keeping key questions in mind. Gratefully, my parents raised me to constantly ask questions and the skill compounds over a lifetime. My goal as a teacher in my school team is to find solutions to the problems we face as a unit. The course of action to solving those problems is to ask questions from all angles and I find myself constantly asking and trying to answer those questions.

I choose to work on following through with focusing on the big picture of literacy. Many teachers rely on me as an instructional coach for ELL best practices. Often I fall short on that goal and I need to follow through.
