Writing for Comprehension
Wallace, Randy; Pearman, Cathy; Hail, Cindy; Hurst, Beth
Reading Horizons, v48 n1 p41-56 2007
Many educators continue to treat reading and writing as separate subjects. In response to this observation, the authors offer four research-based writing strategies that teachers can use to improve student reading comprehension through writing. The writing strategies--"About/Point", "Cubing", "Four Square Graphic Organizer", and "Read," "Respond", "Revisit", "Discuss"--reinforce reading comprehension by helping students strengthen their skills at summarizing, thinking in-depth from multiple perspectives, activating and organizing numerous thoughts, and creating interest through meaningful social interactions. (Contains 1 table and 6 figures.)
