The Center on Instruction hosted a webinar on April 21, 2011, featuring Dr. Steve Graham, co-author of “Writing to Read”, a meta-analysis that examines the influence of writing on reading skills. He presented an overview of the findings and described implications for practice. He also provided specific examples of how writing facilitates reading and reading development. The archived WebEx file can be accessed here. The PowerPoint presentation used during the webinar and a synopsis of the report is available for download below, and the full report can be accessed here.
This webinar provides support in the alignment of instruction for schools that are implementing School Improvement Grants (SIG) and/or the College & Career Ready Standards (including Common Core State Standards).
