Developing as a Reader and Writer - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives
While reading and writing are often taught as separate subjects, in fact, they (and many other subjects) are related. The lessons in this chapter look at how reading and writing are intertwined and will help you develop your skills in each. We'll look at how literature can help expand your world view and at how writing offers an outlet for self-expression.
