“The more you get students involved in activities where they are writing for a real audience and with a real purpose, the more they will see writing as an activity that is necessary, purposeful, and enjoyable,” says Sandhya Nankani, former Supervising Editor, Scholastic Education. “A weekly structure that involves fun writing activities might help students understand and enjoy the social benefits of writing such as sharing stories and learning from others.” Writers Studio equips students to think, write and express themselves fluently while making the right impression.
