As with reading, writing is not a natural skill and therefore must be taught. Unfortunately, many teachers do not feel well prepared to teach writing and the low levels of student writing proficiency demonstrated in many recent measures would seem to be the product of such. The research shows however, that there are proven methods that can be used by teachers to improve student writing.

Of course, ideas includes aspects such as grammar, punctuation and vocabulary and spelling includes aspects such as handwriting and keyboarding.
