Middle school: Grammar and essay writing
Don’t be fooled by those who suggest that electronic media will make writing well less valuable in the future.
The ability to express an idea, summarize a finding, deliver a report remains an asset.
A good writer can distinguish him or herself as a clear thinker and a thought leader.
And on a purely pragmatic basis, writing well can dramatically distinguish one student from another by conveying a mastery of language.
