Writers ARE Readers: Melding the Writing and Reading Workshops

WritersAREreaders

In Writers ARE Readers, the mutually supportive roles of reading and writing are made visible through the idea of "flipsides," or how a reader's insights can be turned around to provide insights into his own writing, and vice versa. With Lester Laminack and Reba Wadsworth's trademark engaging style, Writers ARE Readers is full of sample lessons, student writing samples, and recommended texts to maximize the flipped concept across the year.

Today, Lester and Reba discuss how they first thought about melding the reading and writing workshops, dovetailing instruction so that students could better see the connections between reading and writing.
