Writing is an essential component that should not be ignored as a child learns to read. This course explores the literacy link between reading and writing and writing as a means of communication to motivate readers. In addition, participants will study the role of shared and independent reading in supporting literacy among students, particularly among struggling readers and writers. Learn how to build fluent readers using the technique of writing.
