Why Are Students Coming into College Poorly
Prepared to Write? created by ESSAY-ACADEMY.COM
All these skills have to be mastered completely
and should include
  • One of the essential skills of students on every
    level of education is writing. The process of
    writing involves a bunch of various skills.

  • planning a writing strategy
  • organizing ideas effectively
  • effectively marshaling evidence and using sources
  • communicating ideas clearly and concisely
  • constructing a reasoned, demonstrable argument
  • writing mechanics grammar, sentence structure,
    spelling, etc.

Writing Skills
  • These skills represent writing from various
    aspects and lacking only one of the skills can be
    very unsatisfactory.
  • For example, if a student does not have an
    ability to understand the main point of the text
    listening to it, he definitely cannot write a
    good response to the text.

Writing Skills
  • Reading and listening skills are very important
    components of writing!

Writing Skills
  • The problem of writing also has another
    educational aspect.
  • During previous years in school the students are
    required mostly to support and offer opinions,
  • which are relatively easy tasks if compared to
    that they are going to write in college.

Writing Skills
  • If they enter college or university, the papers
    they need to write are much more difficult.
  • They will require not only personal opinion of
    the writer but selecting the best of works in the
    subject area, prioritizing discoveries and use
    others to prove own point.

Writing Skills
  • For example, they are required to propose a
    complex solution, criticize a point of view of
    another writer, discover a problem and offer ways
    for resolving.
  • All these goals by students may be only achieved
    if supported by relevant works in the area.

The Goals of Writing
  • Furthermore, the students need to shape their
    writing to capture attention of other viewers and
    revise if necessary.
  • As survey by the Chronicle of Higher Education
    showed, more than a half of students that enter
    college have never written a paper that is longer
    than five pages.

The Goals of Writing
  • This suggests that many students do not have
    necessary skills set because they do not
    understand the complexity of college writing!

The Goals of Writing
  • In order to build a reasonable argument, you have
    to use works of other scientists, results from
    studies and personal observations.
  • Everything that is written should be supported.

Habits to Unlearn
  • Besides, students may have many bad habits that
    need to be un-learned in college.
  • For example, some students may use awkward
    grammatical instructions because they were told
    to avoid first person writing in school by their

Habits to Unlearn
  • It is fair to say that it is normal for a student
    to come to college and continue to improve his or
    her skills because college writing is a complex
    process that requires most of the knowledge and
    skills of young writers.

Habits to Unlearn
  • So all mentioned aspects are the reasons why
    school students have poor writing skills.
  • Be sure to improve your own abilities before you
    enter a college.
  • It is an important stage in life so you need to
    be prepared as much as you can.
