Students Learn to Read Like Writers: A Framework for Teachers of Writing
Griffith, Robin R.
Reading Horizons, v50 n1 p49-66 2010
This study provides insight into the role of the elementary school writing teacher in helping students learn to "read like writers" (Smith, 1983). This case study documents how one fourth-grade teacher employed a gradual release of responsibility model as she deliberately planned activities that drew students' attention to well-crafted writing. Findings indicate that this teacher played an important role in helping her students learn to read like writers and that through carefully crafted lessons she significantly influenced students' knowledge of and implementation of crafting techniques.
