Heather's perspective on WRITING:
In today's curriculum, writing is often not a focus even though it is a large part of common core curriculum. Not only are English teachers being asked to teach three or four different styles of writing, but other subjects are to incorporate writing across all curriculum areas. Students often can write words on paper but don't have the tools necessary to organize their thoughts and progress through the writing process without teachers hovering over them. Students today are very visual, using technology can tap into that learning style or combine multiple learning styles for a more successful writing experience.
