Writing Sense

Integrated Reading and Writing Lessons for English Language Learners

Writing is all about making meaning. The prospect of teaching writing to a classroom full of students—some who speak English and some who don't—can be overwhelming. When students learning English are at different levels, the task is even more challenging. Juli Kendall and Outey Khuon experimented with Ellin Keene's “Thinking Strategies Used by Proficient Learners” and found that by integrating writing and reading instruction their English language learners became stronger writers.
