Abstract

Writing is a medium to express our thoughts feelings and views. The basic need to communicate and express constitutes the core of writing. Being one of the core literacy skills, writing is always strongly emphasized in schools. From language to mathematics, from science to social science, writing is a core part of learning. A student spends the maximum time in school ‘writing’. However, does this emphasis make our students good writers? Do they engage in writing in a creative way? Do they use writing for real expression?
