READING BEYOND THE TEXT

“Many teachers of writing lament that they are much more comfortable teaching writing conventions than the writer’s craft. “(p. 49)

“Numerous individuals have attempted to define or at least identify qualities of good writing, yet the definition is still vague and subjective.” (p.50)

Reading Against the Text

“The findings from this study extend the field of writing by providing insight into the role that teachers play in helping students learn to read like writers.” (p.64)

“Helping students learn to read like writers was the first step in helping them to write like writers.” (p. 58)

“Acknowledging that learning is a social process and is influenced by the social context in which it occurs (Jarmillo, 1996; Palincsar, 1998), the individuals who surround the learner play a vital role in the learning process.” (p. 50)
