Integrated Reading and Writing: Challenges and Best Practices 

Led by Dan Curtis-Cummins 

We know that reading and writing should be integrated in the composition classroom, but many of us struggle to design assignments and lessons that truly help students practice both activities. Reading can remain a "silent partner" to writing, one that we find difficult to teach and to assess. If you struggle with IRW, or if you've designed IRW assignments and strategies that you'd like to share, please join us in a roundtable led by Dan Curtis-Cummins. Dan will share some of his own IRW assignments, and facilitate a discussion of challenges and best practices.
