The latest research on the importance of writing to reading comprehension is one teachers need to discuss. You can download Steve Graham’s research study for the Carnegie Institute called, “Writing to Read.”  Go to and download the PDF file at no cost. . I’d love to hear how you engage students in writing about their reading.

On the same website, you should also download Writing Next by Steve   Graham and Dolores Perin, and Reading Next by Catherine Snow and Gina Biancarosa.

All three documents are worthy of reading, studying, and discussing during professional study meetings.
