In several of my blogs I have discussed the importance of writing and speaking. I also discussed the effect of texting and cyber talk on our children's ability to express themselves. While it is good to identify a problem, I strongly believe that the only way to make a difference. That is to discuss solutions, or present information that will help our children become better communicators.
In the next few blogs I will be discussing writing building blocks. What are writing building blocks? Writing blocks are those elements, which one has to master, if they are going to write and speak well. We will examine clauses, sentences, paragraphs, and essay writing with emphasis, on the introduction, body and conclusion.
It is my hope that at the end of these discussions I would have helped students to be better writers and speakers. As better writers and speakers, students will be able to express themselves more confidently and in turn build their self esteem.
