Writing to Read, Reading to Write presents reading, writing, and critical thinking as complementary endeavors that form the foundation of students’ academic success. Reading and writing are presented as recursive processes, and each chapter builds on these skills to help students at all levels achieve college-level writing success. Scaffolding and support for each skill is embedded in every chapter in the form of student-centered guided practice as well as explicit instruction around strategies.

About the Author

Alison Kuehner

Alison Kuehner loves teaching students. She was fortunate to discover her passion for teaching during her senior year of college working as a peer tutor, where she enjoyed the challenge of helping fellow students effectively express their ideas in writing. After earning an undergraduate degree in English literature from the University of California, Berkeley, and a master’s degree in literature from the University of Chicago, she became a teacher, earning an English credential through the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley, and a master’s in reading instruction at Cal State East Bay. Although she enjoyed her time teaching middle school and high school students, Professor Kuehner is most inspired and energized by the diversity and potential of community college students. She has taught a range of courses at Ohlone College in Fremont, California, for thirty years, including literature and composition courses; developmental reading and writing classes; and online, hybrid, and traditional classes. Over the years, she has honed her skills as a teacher, thanks to her students’ feedback and advice, and her colleagues’ willingness to share and collaborate.
