In the Harvard Educational Review (Winter 2012), Steve Graham and Michael Hebert (Vanderbilt) report the results of a meta-analysis of 95 literacy studies, which confirmed the following:
- Writing about material enhance students' comprehension of text.
- Writing skills instruction strengthen students' reading skills?
- Increasing how much students write improve how well they read?
