We have never seen teachers work harder than we do now. These tools inspire kids to work as hard as we are.
-Kate Roberts and Maggie Beattie Roberts

What's DIY Literacy? It's making your own visual teaching tools instead of buying them. It's using your teaching smarts to get the most from those tools. And it's helping kids think strategically so they can be DIY learners.

Teaching tools create an impact on students' learning, write Kate Roberts and Maggie Beattie Roberts. They help students hold onto our teaching and become changed by the work in the classroom. Of course, you and your students need the right tools for the job, so first Kate and Maggie share four simple, visual tools that you can make. Then they show how to maximize your instructional know-how with suggestions for using the tools to: make your reading and writing strategies stick motivate students to reach for their next learning goal differentiate instruction simply and quickly.

Kate and Maggie are like a friendly, handy neighbor. They offer experience-honed advice for using the four tools for assessment, small-group instruction, conferring, setting learning goals, and, most important, helping students learn to apply strategies and make progress without prompting from you. In other words, to do it themselves.

It is our greatest hope, write Kate and Maggie, that the tools we offer here will help your students to work hard, to hold onto what they know, and to see themselves in the curriculum you teach. Try DIY Literacy and help your readers and writers take learning into their own hands.
