Reading: Nonfiction

Making Reading/Writing Connections in Expository Texts


As teachers, we know that it is critical to make explicit links between reading and writing and that writing can be used to clarify and deepen our understanding of what we read. Participants will experience several writing strategies that will prepare students to comprehend informational texts. Participants will walk away with practical strategies that will strengthen their teaching practices without requiring extra prep time.
