Item description for Teaching Early Writing and Reading Together: Mini-Lessons that Link K-2 Literacy Instruction by Connie Campbell Dierking...
The writing/reading connection means more than having your students write under the influence of literature that they have read! Noted author and educator Connie Campbell Dierking shows you how to develop a literacy-connected classroom, including using oral storytelling to scaffold primary reading and writing. She supplies more than 50 mini-lessons organized by their classroom function to help you explicitly teach foundational literacy skills during writer s workshop or whole-class and small-group reading instruction. Dierking encourages you to make the most of the writing/reading connection by thinking about some basic questions when you re crafting your literacy instruction: * How can I connect the conversations in reading and writing workshop? * What can I learn about the readers in my classroom through their writing? * What can my students learn about reading through writing? * How can I teach young writers to support their readers? * How can I teach readers how to use a writer s supports intentionally? Transform your K-2 literacy instruction. Teach writing and reading together.

Reviews - What do customers think about Teaching Early Writing and Reading Together: Mini-Lessons that Link K-2 Literacy Instruction?
Great Author and Teacher Sep 6, 2008
I was honored to teach in the same school as Connie several years ago. I was able to experience her teaching of mini-lessons in writing as well as read-alouds. Connie is now working for the State of Florida with the Reading First program, designed to help all students raise their acheivement levels in Reading. A loss for the school, but a well deserved feather in Mrs. Dierking's hat.
