Students’ Writing Can Be Better: Encouragement and Time to Pursue Self Leads to Engagement and Better Writing, Resulting in Possible Increased Writing Levels Nationally
Journal of Literacy Innovation, vol. 1, no. 1, 2016, pp. 50-59
"JLI’s inaugural issue concludes with Christina Kennison’s excellent article, “Students’ Writing Can Be Better: Encouragement and Time to Pursue Self Leads to Engagement and Better Writing, Resulting in Possible Increased Writing Levels Nationally.”
This piece skillfully combines “big-picture” data insights about American students’ writing development (as well as the longterm implications of their writing struggles) with specific activities teachers can use to help students enhance their writing skills in authentic ways."
