Enabling Writing Through Reading by Ruth Z Hauzel
As a result of the developments in language teaching methods and an increasing demand for communication skills, the nature of language courses changed from content-based to skill-based, giving some scope to writing skill instruction and development. The relationship between reading and writing is often overlooked and reading has not always been a dominant force in writing classrooms. This book is based on a study examining the relationship between students’ reading and writing. It analyses the role of the reading input in the students’ written output in the second language classroom at the school level. This book will benefit teachers, teacher educators and trainers across disciplines to help their students improve their writing skills.
