Readers That Can't Write...Writers That Can't Read.
Truax, Paige
Noting that learning to read and learning to write are closely linked, this paper asks why there are sometimes readers who cannot write and writers who cannot read. The paper advocates taking a closer look at the reading and writing relationship to answer the question and provide strategies for competent literacy instruction in all areas. It reviews the literature for effective literacy practices and finds that the work of Pike, Compain, and Mumper (1994) presents an in-depth understanding of the reading-writing relationship by defining specific attributes common to both and addressing the two processes in an integrated manner rather than as isolated subjects. It also cites several other helpful studies. (NKA)
