When Writers Read by Jane Hansen

In When Writers Read, Jane Hansen demonstrates how recent approaches in the teaching of writing can be used in the teaching of reading. She explores how a response approach is used in teaching writing and how the essential features of that approach-which encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning and gives them a sense of control over their efforts-can be put to good use in teaching children to read.
