The swell in attention to the Science of Reading points to the urgency of teaching students to read. However, we must also turn our attention to the research behind the Science of Writing. Writing is an invaluable skill that empowers learners to communicate their ideas and has proven ties to comprehension and fluency. This panel will discuss key themes from decades of seminal research on writing instruction and explore how that research can be translated into instructional pillars across K-12.
