A word from Maupin House

I asked Julie Graddy, the publisher at Maupin House to comment on why teaching through reading is "hot" right now, and this was her response: "The link between reading and writing is obvious, but no one has been taught how to teach the two concepts together as reciprocals. With all the time constraints that teachers have, it makes sense to be able to open up the K-5 reading block and use writing as a strategy for teaching reading. All the research supports it."
