Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Educators need to facilitate the reading and writing connection to expand their students' capacity to express themselves in written form. The connections made between the comprehension-composition processes enhance children's emerging literacy (Atwell, 1987; Calkins, 1983; Calkins, 1991; Graves, 1990; Hansen, 1987; Murray, 1986; Rosenblatt, 1978). Calkins believes that reading and writing are inseparable. Moss (1977) relates that opportunities to read quality literature can influence children's writing abilities.
