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.
