Writing as a Tool for Improving Foundational Reading Skills An Overview

Event Description

Note: SCECHs are pending for this event.

Writing and reading both rely on common processes and knowledge (Fitzgerald and Shanahan, 2000). These skills include shared component skills (e.g., word reading, spelling), foundational literacy skills (phonology, morphology, orthography), oral language skills, general cognitive skills, content knowledge, and background knowledge, among others (Hebert et al., in press). This session highlights how writing can be used to facilitate foundational reading skill development. This includes an overview of strategies found to be effective in meta-analyses and recent primary research.
