Literacy Leadership


Matt Renwick taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade in Rudolph, Wisconsin. He observed the power in student engagement as readers and writers, and wanted to spread these ideas by becoming a principal. As a building administrator, Matt encourages all staff to leverage resources to make sure kids have access to texts that they want to and can read. Literacy is a priority for a school when leaders in every position advocate for authentic texts, teaching excellence, and time to read. Matt shares about these topics on Twitter at @ReadByExample and on his newsletter, He is also the author of two books for ASCD, 5 Myths About Classroom Technology and Digital Portfolios in the Classroom. And watch for this third book (from Corwin) January 2022, Leading Like a C.O.A.C.H.
