Webinar Date & Time: December 6, 2022 | 4:00–5:00 p.m. ET • 1:00–2:00 p.m. PT
Research has shown that effective writing instruction improves students’ reading comprehension and fluency. In fact, background knowledge, vocabulary, and literacy knowledge can all be explicitly taught through writing instruction.
During this webinar, Natalie Wexler will explore reading-writing connections and share:
- Why some representations of the science of reading are open to misinterpretation about how to equip students to comprehend complex text
- How explicit writing instruction can deepen and cement academic knowledge and familiarity with complex syntax
- How teachers can build academic knowledge and use writing activities to compensate for knowledge gaps
- How administrators can enable students to read and write at higher levels by adopting a coherent, content-rich elementary literacy curriculum
Join us to deepen your understanding of the connections between reading and writing and their role in helping students become skilled readers.
