Writing in Reading Classes

Annotated Research

Question: How much time is spent in reading classes on writing?

Answer: “Little or no reading class time was spent on writing or writing instruction.” KC Howard. 1987. P. 224.

Comment: I don’t know if this is still true (2011), but if so, it’s a huge mistake. Reading  to learn activities help with comprehension among other reading skills. I wonder if this finding involved literature classes? RayS.
