In Writers Are Readers, the mutually supportive roles of reading and writing are made visible through the idea of “flipsides;” how a reader’s insights can be turned around to provide insights into his own writing, and vice versa. Lester and Reba’s trademark engaging style is woven throughout chapters full of sample lessons, student writing samples, and recommended texts for maximizing the flipped concept across the year.  “Leading the student to understand what he did as a reader can become a lens that brings into focus what the writer had to do before a reader ever saw the page,” they write. Discover fresh new ways to turn reading strategies into writing opportunities that your students will be excited about and deeply understand.
