Reader reads the sentence silently and then poses a question about Writer’s sentence.<br />5. Writer then answers Reader’s question by adding a sentence immediately following the first one. <br />6. Reader then reads the new sentence and asks an appropriate question pertaining to it. <br />7. Continue this process for several more sentences.<br />Implementing the Reading-Writing Connection (Smith & Ramonda, 1997).<br />

    10. 10. Good Teaching<br />One of the best examples of good teaching I have ever<br />encountered was with a golf professional. On my first lesson,<br />he said, “Here is a bucket of balls…hit ‘em.” A few minutes<br />later he wandered back and quietly said, “Keep hitting them,<br />only this time keep your head down, eye on the ball.” By the<br />next bucket of balls he had introduced one more skill for the day…no more.<br />Before a few weeks were out, he had quietly attended to my feet, grip,<br />shoulder level, and follow through. A few years later I realized with a start<br />that every single one of my problems was visible on that first lesson. If I had<br />attended to all of them that first day, I would probably have missed the ball<br />entirely and resigned in disgust from ever playing golf again.<br />Donald Graves<br />Writing: Teacher & Children At Work<br />Permission is granted by Northwest Regional Education Laboratory for reproduction by schools for<br />classroom use only<br />
