      The old red truck barely made the turn as it rounded the curve.
    • 6. "Writing for the Reader"
      1. Pair with a partner
      2. Each group contains a Reader and a Writer
      3. Writer will compose a sentence that will begin a paragraph.
      4. Reader reads the sentence silently and then poses a question about Writer’s sentence.
      5. Writer then answers Reader’s question by adding a sentence immediately following the first one.
      6. Reader then reads the new sentence and asks an appropriate question pertaining to it.
      7. Continue this process for several more sentences.
      Implementing the Reading-Writing Connection (Smith & Ramonda, 1997).
    • 7. Teachers need to provide students with rich literacy experiences so that they can read and write in various situations for a variety of reasons.“Everything points to the necessity of learning to write from what we read.” (Smith, 1983, p. 560)
      Reading should be used for gaining insight for writing in different genres to develop students’ style and form in writing. (Dionisio, 1983, Smith , 1983)

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