READING
Writing is basic to thinking, learning, and growth. It
allows students to think in complex ways, building
critical thinking skills and developing knowledge of
oneself and the outside world.
Writing helps clarify and order experience, while
simultaneously demonstrating how much one knows
about a topic. The more fluent the writer, the more
successfully one can compete academically.

learned if they are able to collaborate with others and
make connections.
