Pursuing Comprehensive Literacy

Reinforcing the Bond Between Reading and Writing

Did you know that better writers have proven to be better readers? Writing instruction has the potential to enhance reading proficiency by improving how well a reader is able to comprehend a specific content area or a text they have already read, according to a report published by the Alliance for Excellent Education¹.

There is a huge opportunity for growth, as national reading scores have decreased by three points for fourth-grade students in comparison to 2019, according to the 2022 NAEP Reading Assessment². Good writing instruction has the power to improve both writing and reading skills, promoting comprehensive literacy for all students.

To help you strengthen literacy in your classroom, school, or district, we asked our team of experts to share their best tips and tricks for reinforcing the bond between reading and writing, and explain why it’s so important in K-5 education.
