Reading and writing are strongly reciprocal, not only in how they develop but in how they are used. It’s important to support learners to make links between the two. One example of how to do this is described in the section on language experiences on pages 40 and 41 in Starting Points – Supporting the Learning Progressions for Adult Literacy.

  • Although learners are often interested in reading texts written by other learners, don’t use these as prime instructional material unless they really do afford the opportunities for instruction that are necessary in an effective programme.
