Writing and Reading: Exploiting Their Similarities in Teaching. Suggestions for High School English Teachers in Japan.
Morino, Hiroaki
Two key parallels exist between reading and writing, each with profound implications for the teaching of these skills, and which can be adapted for the situation in Japanese high schools, where reading and writing classes are separate. First, on a theoretical level, writing and reading are cognitively similar in that they are both active and recursive processes, a parallel that implies that they are learned and can be taught in similar ways. Second, on a more practical level, they are processes that depend on and reinforce one another in ordinary use. Based on these parallels, two sets of specific suggestions are presented for Japanese teachers of English, one for writing teachers and one for reading teachers, with sample teaching exercises. Three reading passages are appended. Contains 22 references. (MSE)
