Literacy-rich environments, as endorsed by the International Reading Association, have a significant impact on what goes on in the classroom and set the stage for interactions with a wide variety of genres. In the past several years, I’ve supported many teachers and administrators as they work toward creating literacy-rich classrooms across schools and districts that allow for increased interaction with print and literacy learning for students…

Elements of a literacy-rich environment include, but are not limited to:

  • classroom libraries that include a variety of genres and text types,
  • content posters,
  • anchor charts – teacher-made and co-created with students,
  • word walls,
  • labels,
  • literacy workstations,
  • writing centers,
  • computers,
  • display of student work,
  • displays of books & information,
  • bulletin boards, and
  • plenty of opportunity to read, write, listen, and speak.
