Teaching writing in the classroom can be time consuming.
It is no secret that writing is not one of those favourite activities of children in school. Well, except for those few rare ones whose ambition is to be an author one day.
Despite not being a favourite activity, writing is essential in life. We’re engaged in some form of writing in our daily life… from writing reports at work, writing resumes and emails, to the more casual and impromptu forms of writing such as listing items in a grocery list. We are constantly putting our thoughts on paper (or on iPad, mobiles, tablets, computers, whatever screen you’re using)!
Is teaching writing important? Absolutely!
