The Key to Literacy: Teaching Kids to Write for Pleasure and Read for Fun

Kids who like writing outside class are seven times more likely to write above the expected level for their age. New research from the National Literacy Trust suggests that, just as educators improve literacy by helping kids read for fun, we can do the same for writing. 

The study was organized by First Story and questioned 39,411 eight to 18-year-olds across the UK.
