Developing Reading and Writing Skills


Research shows that the development of reading and writing proficiencies are closely aligned and depend on many of the same skills. This can be particularly important for literacy development of ELLs. By taking advantage of this relationship, teachers can improve skills and achievement in both areas.

For this assignment, create a 10-12 slide digital presentation for new teachers including the following:

  • Explain the      connection between reading and writing development.
  • Define and      discuss the stages of writing development.
  • Define and      discuss the five features of effective language and literacy instruction,      including examples: (1) explicit instruction, (2) systematic instruction      with scaffolds, (3) multiple opportunities for student practice, (4)      assessment and progress monitoring, and (5) feedback.

Include a title page, presenter’s notes, and reference page. 

Support your presentation with a minimum of three scholarly resources. 


The digital presentation should include graphics that are relevant to the content, visually appealing, and use space appropriately.
