The Interdependence of Reading, Writing and Spelling.
Miele, Tony; Murphey, Adrianne; Williams, Bart
The more children read, the more they write and the better they spell. As the quality of a child's reading content rises, so does his or her writing. Emergent literacy research suggests that reading and writing occur simultaneously and encourage the growth of one another. Research has also concluded that writing frequently for authentic purposes cultivates a student's value of correct spelling. It is sound practice to address reading, writing, and spelling as a whole, a practice based in evidence that they are inextricably linked. Support and encouragement given to readers and writers improves their spelling, validating reading as an indispensable tool in learning to write and spell. Contains 9 references. (RS)
