schools
face
the
difficult
challenge
of
creating
a
strong
curriculum
that
 had
as
its
main
priority
a
focus
on
reading
skills
to
comply
with
Federal
funding
guidelines.
In
this
 report,
we
illustrate
the
usefulness
of
a
flexible
teaching
method
that
institutes
writing
as
a
building
 block
to
learning
and
comprehension
as
well
as
creates
writing
activities
across
all
grade
levels
and
all
 curriculum
including
math
and
science.
The
goal
of
this
report
is
to
illustrate
the
benefits
of
 implementing
proven
methods
of
writing
instruction
to
stimulate
writing
skill
development
and
create
a
 positive
attitude
towards
writing.

Introduction

Educators
have
long
known
that
children
and
young
people
are
capable
of
learning
in
a
variety
of
creative
 ways,
ways
that
go
beyond
traditional
methods
of
rote
and
lecture.
Writing
has
emerged
as
a
method
for
 encouraging
creative
learning.
Writing
can
facilitate
more
creative,
more
active
learning
of
course
content.
It
 can
also
help
students
learn
more
about
negotiating
the
social
situations
relevant
to
the
content.
The
problem
 at
hand
is
that
many
teachers
are
facing
a

of
challenges
when
teaching
writing.
 
 Current
Climate
 A
2007
national
public
opinion
survey
by
the
National
Assessment
for
Educational
Projects
(NAEP)
reported
 that
the
American
public
wants
writing
to
be
taught
early
and
often
in
schools.
This

comes
from
 survey
participants
of
all
income
and
education
levels
and
all
geographic
regions.
 
 Three‐quarters
of
those
surveyed
believe
there
is
a
greater
need
now
to
be
able
to
write
well
than
there
was
 20
years
ago.
And
98
percent
say
they
think
learning
to
write
well
is
important
to
learning
how
to
 communicate
effectively.
The
survey

that
