Anne Ruggles Gere

Anne Ruggles Gere (also known as Anne Gere) is an American scholar in the field of language education and literacy. She has published on topics such as the history of writing groups, best practices in literacy education, and integration of culturally responsive pedagogy.

Ruggles Gere has served as president of the Modern Language Association., National Council of Teachers of English, and the Conference on College Composition and Communication. Additionally, she has served as the chair of University of Michigan's Joint Program in English and Education since 1988, participating in over 100 dissertation committees, many of whom have built on her research.

She is the Arthur F. Thurnau Collegiate professor of English and the Gertrude Buck Professor of Education at the University of Michigan, and her academic research has focused on the evolution of writing groups, the history of women's clubs, and writing pedagogy.

She asserts that clubwomen engaged in social, economic, and political issues that shaped the nation.
