Learning to be a good writer is one of the skills taught in AVID. But why exactly do we practice writing skills? The answer is writing will be used more than any other subject we learn in school no matter what profession we decide to have.
According to a study from CollegeBoard, businesses are spending as much as $3.1 billion on remedial writing training–annually. That’s because students completed school and did not learn how to write.
We need to practice writing and we need to practice it often not just to get good grades in school but also for our future jobs. Lucky for Sussman Middle School, our motto is “Write Here, Write Now”.
