WEBINAR: Writing and the Science of Reading

As schools and districts shift to evidence-based literacy practices, they need to attend to reading’s twin component in literacy instruction: writing. Research demonstrates that reading and writing are intimately connected and can be taught together. This Education Week webinar will review some of the research about the connections between reading and writing, what' known about structured writing approaches, and how one district began using writing to supplement its new curriculum and build students’ background knowledge.
