Description:
This April 2008 report finds that "[t]eens write a lot, but they do not think of their emails, instant and text messages as writing. This disconnect matters because teens believe good writing is an essential skill for success and that more writing instruction at school would help them." Includes the full report, the questionnaire, press release, and links to related reports. From the Pew Internet & American Life Project.
