A Decline in American High School Students' Writing Abilities

So many American high school students are lacking good writing skills today simply because they do not write that much anymore. The recent surveys show that high school students write less frequently and receive less writing assignments in class. This is a dangerous trend, but there are ways to combat this. One way is to write more. Whether they have writing assignments or not, students could write personal journals, letters, or blog posts to practice writing. Another way is to read more "good" writings. Many high school students today only read updates on Facebook and gossip magazine articles. Reading articles or books that are well written will improve their writing skills.
