Writing to Read, Reading to Write
Published: January 16, 2019
Writing to Read, Reading to Write presents reading, writing, and critical thinking as engaging and complementary endeavors. This focus on reading also gives students who are underprepared for the first-year composition course, or in the co-requisite support sections, a chance to practice those skills and re-apply them as they develop college level work. Designed for the broad mix of students who enter today's first-year composition course - and for the instructors who support them - Writing to Read, Reading to Write offers a process-oriented, recursive approach that supports student learning. Each chapter is based on a thought-provoking question to provide opportunities for critical thinking and includes essay prompts for students to focus their reading and plan their writing. The structure of Writing to Read, Reading to Write allows for flexibility in different approaches to teaching first-year composition.
