"Readiness is All": The Importance of Speaking and Writing Connections.
Hagaman, John A.
Journal of Teaching Writing, v5 n2 p187-92 Fall 1986
Argues that since students often articulate their meaning in speaking better than they can in writing, teachers should improve their awareness of speech and writing connections. Describes such relationships and suggests teaching strategies using speech to improve writing. Covers group composition, reading aloud, transcribing prewriting conversations, small group activities, individual conferences, and voice- and audience-oriented writing assignments. (JG)
