Meaningful communication among today’s students is becoming a lost art as social media and mobile devices reward quantity and speed over quality and time. Kids impulsively “like,” comment, “tweet,” and text their friends in short bursts of abbreviated code. The result is the ability to write a thoughtful, reflective, well-composed expression of thought is atrophying like a little-used muscle.
It’s a generational skill deficit, and it creates new challenges in both the learning and teaching of writing. Research shows that 2/3 of tomorrow’s jobs will require a college degree, and we know that kids need to write in college! But even non-college students need the ability to clearly communicate in writing.
lettrs built a platform to fill this need for “quality communications” called Literacy through Letters.
