Reading, Writing, Marking, & Difficulty: Re-Reading Salvatori in Light of Digital Writing Practices At tomorrow’s pedagogy workshop here on campus (2.17.10), we’ll be reading and discussing Mariolina Salvatori’s College English article “Conversations with Texts: Reading in the Teaching of Composition” (1996). While acknowledging that I’m oversimplifying, I want to mention four important points in the article, and think through them (now, 14 years later) in terms of pedagogy inflected by digital writing tools. Salvatori herself describes the project of her article as “an argument on behalf of the theoretical and practical appropriateness of using ‘reading’ as a means of teaching ‘writing’” (441). ?_bta_tid=3.AIf5.CfZgxQ.JP8X.AyF5Yg..A62_hw.b..s.AgKc.n..

Writing and Reading Connections Between Language by Hand and Language by Eye Todd Richards Abstract Teaching our children to write, read & spell: Part 2 - Waldorf Library Link to the article: Teaching our children to write, read & spell: Part 2 #1 Question: If I am understanding what you wrote in Part I, children that are pre-school age or in kindergarten should not be pushed to write, read or spell because it might create learning disabilities in the future?

Teaching Basic Writing Online At the San Francisco State campus of the California State University (CSU) where I teach, nearly half the entering class of first year students place into developmental level English courses based on their score on a systemwide English Placement Test. We know, from data accumulated from over 20 years of EPT administrations, that it is their performance on the reading section the test that disproportionately accounts for their placement in developmental level English classes. At virtually all CSU campuses, this means students enroll in a writing course to address their difficulties with reading. On my campus, we have, up until 5 years ago, tried to address this problem by offering a one-unit reading course concurrent with a 3-unit BW course. But the results of this “solution” continued to frustrate us and have led us toward efforts to develop a fully integrated reading/writing (IRW) program.
