“If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.” Stephen King

  • Reading and writing are linked in the same way that listening and speaking are.
  • Reading and writing are both purposeful activities, and are both about meaning. They share the same functions, and use the same print conventions and language features.
  • When educators make deliberate links between reading and writing, they reinforce and extend literacy learning.
