About this learning opportunity

It's important to remember that writing can be as difficult a subject to teach and assess as it is to learn. Many students have trouble writing with clarity, coherence, and organization, and this can discourage them from writing if they feel frustrated.

That's where parent involvement can make a big difference. Encouraging your child to develop strong writing skills at a young age, can have a lifelong positive impact on the writing, and may make writing an easier and more enjoyable process for your child.

Find out why writing is so important in our lives, as well as practical suggestions for activities to help your child become a stronger writer.

This session is being offered on a cost recovery basis.
