Did you know that four out of five students are not proficient writers? The new National Assessment of Educational Progress in writing test given in 2012 showed that only 27% of the 8th and 12th graders that were given the test scored at or above a proficient level. Also, writing is the only subject area in which many teachers consistently rank their students as “fair” or “poor.” Yet, writing is a critical skill for everything from writing college admission essays to work one once school is over.
