In her entertaining and edifying New York Times bestseller, acclaimed author Francine Prose invites you to sit by her side and take a guided tour of the tools and tricks of the masters to discover why their work has endured. Written with passion, humour and wisdom, Reading Like a Writer will inspire readers to return to literature with a fresh eye and an eager heart – to take pleasure in the long and magnificent sentences of Philip Roth and the breathtaking paragraphs of Isaac Babel; to look to John le Carré for a lesson in how to advance plot through dialogue and to Flannery O’Connor for the cunning use of the telling detail; to be inspired by Emily Brontë’s structural nuance and Charles Dickens’s deceptively simple narrative techniques. Most importantly, Prose cautions readers to slow down and pay attention to words, the raw material out of which all literature is crafted, and reminds us that good writing comes out of good reading.

The Social and Cognitive Studies in Writing and Literacy Series, is devoted to books that bridge research, theory, and practice, exploring social and cognitive processes in writing and expanding our knowledge of literacy as an active constructive process--as students move from high school to college. This descriptive study of reading-to-write examines a critical point in every college student's academic performance: when he or she is faced with the task of reading a source, integrating personal ideas, and creating an individual text with a self-defined purpose. Offering an unusually comprehensive view of this process, the authors chart a group of freshmen as they study and write in their dormitories, recording their "think-aloud" strategies for reading, writing, and revising, their interpretation of the task, and their broader social, cultural, and contextual understanding of college writing. Flower, Stein, and colleagues convincingly conclude that the legacy of schooling in general makes the transition to college difficult and, more important, that the assumptions students hold and the strategies they use in undertaking this task play a significant role in their academic performance. Embracing a broad range of perspectives from rhetoric, composition, literacy research, literary and cultural theory, and cognitive psychology, this rigorous analysis treats reading-to-write as both a cognitive and social process. It will interest researchers and theoreticians in rhetoric and writing, teachers working with students in transition from high school to college, and educators involved in the links between cognition and the social process.

Traditionally, reading and writing are believed to be separate but related language processes and teachers follow the conventional wisdom of teaching in-depth reading, with writing as a tag-on issue. Therefore, there exists an increasingly urgent call for a well-rounded reading-writing curriculum and a theoretically-informed, empirically-based, student-centered advanced textbook that aims to develop the synergy between reading and writing. Reading to Write: A Textbook of Advanced Chinese is intended to fill this significant gap. It treats reading and writing as integrative parts and interactive skills in Chinese language teaching, putting them hand-in-hand, supplementing each other.

Parallel Learning of Reading and Writing in Early Childhood explores why it’s important to provide a balanced language learning environment for young children and offers approaches for children to practice and explore language. Writing – a different but parallel process – can open the door to reading, and an effective writing approach in the home and early childhood classrooms leads to the development of phonemic awareness, understanding of phonetic principles, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. Effective early childhood teachers are those that extend the knowledge children have amassed at home and use the knowledge of how children learn naturally in the world to inform their practice. This book offers the purpose, context, and outcomes of including writing right from the start in young children’s literacy learning. Through analysis of writing samples, research, and principles of best practices, Shea outlines the essential ingredients for early language learning and provides a developmentally appropriate approach to language learning. Throughout the chapters, Shea integrates discussion of assessment, classroom environment, instructional/teacher scaffolding, and differentiating instruction across developmental levels along with the supporting theory. Special features: vignettes and descriptions of Pre-K, K, and Grade 1 classrooms that incorporate writing across the day artifacts of children’s writing that demonstrate an evolution of knowledge related to both message and word construction concept labeling words and topic specific terms defined throughout the book to support the reader’s understanding of professional terminology discussion of seminal and current research as well as best practices Companion Website with lesson ideas and abundant writing samples from a wide range of demographic, cultural, and language contexts for readers to view, analyze, and discuss. This text offers pre- and in-service early childhood education teachers the content and resources to develop a deeper understanding of language learning, to prompt an examination of current practice, and to stimulate curricular re-designs that foster meaningful, joyful, and motivated learning.

For intermediate-level courses in Integrated Reading and Writing. This version of Read Think Write:True Integration Through Academic Content has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)* A meaningful, content-driven approach to integrated reading and writing proficiency Read Think Write: True Integration Through Academic Content helps students develop the skills they need to achieve success in all subsequent academic courses. The authors start with an introduction to the reading, thinking, and writing processes and a detailed discussion of how students can get the most out of the text. Subsequent chapters are organized thematically, each covering an academic content area. This provides students with an immersive learning experience by building their academic vocabulary and enabling them to develop and pursue academic interests. Each discipline chapter culminates with an essay assignment that asks students to integrate skills they've learned in the chapter and ideas from the other chapter readings. Students apply these skills by reading actively, thinking about and evaluating text, identifying the topics, main ideas, and details, making inferences, and recognizing key patterns of organization and translating these reading skills into their writing equivalents to write thoughtful, effective essays. * The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the "increasing mobility of texts," MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.

sIn Transforming Our Teaching Through Reading/Writing Connections, Regie Routman shows how to raise students' achievement in reading and writing through a model that interconnects these two literacies. The opening sessions ask teachers to articulate their beliefs about reading and writing and then align them with their practices. Subsequent sessions show how students' literacy understandings are deepened when children's work in writing is used to enhance their reading, and vice versa.sResearch shows that high-level, on-site, and ongoing professional development is the surest route to school improvement in literacy, and Transforming Our Teaching Through Reading/Writing Connections delivers it directly to your teachers.delivers it directly to your teachers.sTransforming Our Teaching Through Reading/Writing Connections is based on four foundational ideas.s1. Change begins with defining common beliefs and setting high expectations about teaching and learning. For lasting, schoolwide change and high achievement, teachers across grade levels must develop common beliefs about what student writers are capable of, and which practices best advance children's writing.s2. An Optimal Learning Model provides an effective, unified model for teaching and learning.

Arguing that reading and writing in school should be natural and enjoyable for children, this book is based on the Piagetian theory that knowledge is constructed by each individual and the psycholinguistic view that learning takes place best when viewed as holistic and when instructional materials for children are authentic and purposeful. The book describes the constructive nature of children's thinking, reading, and writing, and the natural development of these processes. Chapter 1 discusses a model of literacy learning and the role of teachers in creating sound literacy programs for their pupils. Chapters 2 and 3 present instructional practices, consistent with the whole-language approach, that support natural literacy development of young children. The last chapter presents final comments. (Appendixes list children's books: favorite books, poetry collections, big book publishers, books used for cooking as an extended activity, and predictable books. A 26-item bibliography and a 17-item annotated bibliography are attached.) (RS)

The three sections of the book define the relationship between composing and comprehending, explore relevant research, and discuss the implications of this relationship to the learning and teaching processes. The 19 articles discuss (1) research on reading/writing relationships; (2) composing and comprehending as two sides of the same basic process; (3) a composing model of reading; (4) reading like a writer; (5) reading and writing as meditation; (6) children reading their own stories aloud in the classroom; (7) writing and the teaching of reading; (8) reading for style; (9) writing and reading developmental trends among low socioeconomic status children; (10) how reading affects children's writing; (11) the concept of the word in beginning reading and writing processes; (12) a theory of how children learn to read and write naturally; (13) observations of learning to read and write naturally; (14) translating children's everday uses of print into classroom practice; (15) pragmatic functions of reading and writing relationships; (16) young children solving the puzzle of reading, writing, and language; (17) reading with a sense of the writer and writing with a sense of the reader; (18) reading and writing as natural language activities; and (19) schema theory as a writing approach to reading comprehension.
