Helping Your Child with Writing

From a few sentences on what they did over summer vacation to a doctoral thesis, students never stop needing to know how to write, and write appropriately for their level. Closely tied to reading, learning to write employs many similar strategies, as well as some that are unique to this vital part of life.
