Defining Integrated Reading and Writing
Highest Level of Reading (READ 0303) Combined with Highest level of English (ENGL 0301)

Reading and Writing should be linked thematically.
Every act of writing should involve reading, and every act of reading should involve writing.
What should an INRW class look like?
Diverse readings should be included.
Every assignment should fold back on each other.
Reading and Writing should be taught in a step-by-step manner with instant feedback.
Self-reflection and metacognitive awareness should be encouraged.
Step-by-Step Process
Instant feedback
Reading and Writing Logs

Saves students time and money
Students become aware of the connections between reading and writing.

Questions to Consider
What theme(s) do I want to use?
Can I find texts that relate to the theme?
Is the theme general enough that I can find cross curricular texts?
How many major writing assignments can be used?
How can I teach students that reading and writing is a step-by-step process?
How can I teach reading strategies from a writing perspective and writing strategies from a reading perspective?
Limited time - Consider the strategies your students already use well, make efficient use of lab time.
Recruiting students - Visiting lower level classes, working with student success, advertising.
Choosing texts- Finding diverse texts, using excerpts from text books, utilizing library database
