Chapter 8 & 9 Reading
Reading and writing are very important for any student to learn. These two have a strong connection and go hand-in-hand. I totally agree with the textbook in which it states, "Reading and writing instruction should not be seperate nor should writing instruction be postponed until students are able to read." Even if a student cannot write to form words, he/she can draw pictures to depict their message they are trying to get across or they could participate in storytelling. I think it is imerpative that teachers understand the importance of these two ksills and that they try their best to get their students actively involved in many different ways.
