21st Century Learning and Workforce Readiness
Writing is a key component for students to be successful in the 21st century. Writing is important for communication, whether that is with pencil and paper or through typing. Writing allows students to put their thoughts onto paper for others to read. People come across writing in their everyday lives, whether that is shopping, driving, emailing, social media, etc. Without the ability to write, students cannot contribute adequately to our society.
