If students can't write, how can they learn?

I knew it was hard for an overworked teacher with a class of 25 or 30 students to engage in the kind of one-on-one work that teaching writing often requires.

Andrea Luna's insight:

This was a very interesting article. From the title of the article it has caught my attention already. I loved the way the author described everything. What I found most interesting was that she has a point. She explains how students do not understand the writing techniques so formulate a paper. They do not know how to form a paragraph essay, they just know how to write it in one paragraph.

Andrea Luna's insight:

This was a very interesting and entertaining article to read. I actually found myself following along. This articles talks about different strategies to improve student writing. I learned that sometimes just writing notes to yourself will help you as you go. This works kind of like a rough draft or a brain storming paper but with this strategy you write down notes that will help strengthen your writing.

Andrea Luna's insight:

This generation is known for its technologies. Its known for coming up with the latest technology. We are known to not use communication skills verbally but technology can be a way to learn. There are many apps that people come up with in order to learn how to count, how to read, how to do everything basically and it is a clever way to learn. Using technology can cause a distraction for all we know but we just have to wait and see the results.

Nikole Maroe's curator insight, March 4, 2014 12:56 PM

I think this article is interesting because you would think that you could just read a book to practice reading. Nowadays everything is getting electronic, even in local elementary schools every student is receiving iPads. This idea of giving K-8 grade students iPads to work on in class is repulsive.  I do not think there has been an improvement to teaching or learning with these enhances in the classroom and the fact that there are "55 free iPad Apps for practicing  reading" is wrong, well at least thats what i believe. The younger generation is already so intwined with technology so in my eye i do not think that it needs to be in the classroom as well.
