Writers ARE Readers: Stretching Lessons Into An Opportunity For Writing

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. In today's video, Lester describes how our vocabulary knowledge, our schema for the world, acts as a kind of bank account into which we deposit and from which we withdraw.

 

Writers ARE Readers: Flipping Reading Instruction Into Writing Opportunities is available now.
