Composing and Comprehending.
Jensen, Julie M., Ed.
Intended for elementary school teachers of reading and composition, this book assembles several articles on the reading/writing relationship that have appeared in 1982 and 1983 issues of the journal "Language Arts." The three sections of the book define the relationship between composing and comprehending, explore relevant research, and discuss the implications of this relationship to the learning and teaching processes. The 19 articles discuss (1) research on reading/writing relationships; (2) composing and comprehending as two sides of the same basic process; (3) a composing model of reading; (4) reading like a writer; (5) reading and writing as meditation; (6) children reading their own stories aloud in the classroom; (7) writing and the teaching of reading; (8) reading for style; (9) writing and reading developmental trends among low socioeconomic status children; (10) how reading affects children's writing; (11) the concept of the word in beginning reading and writing processes; (12) a theory of how children learn to read and write naturally; (13) observations of learning to read and write naturally; (14) translating children's everday uses of print into classroom practice; (15) pragmatic functions of reading and writing relationships; (16) young children solving the puzzle of reading, writing, and language; (17) reading with a sense of the writer and writing with a sense of the reader; (18) reading and writing as natural language activities; and (19) schema theory as a writing approach to reading comprehension.
