    Please teach them to write

    I teach 7th and 8th English and Reading. The most important thing I can think of that my students are lacking this year is the ability to write. They struggle in writing a strong paragraph--and at times I'd settle for a strong sentence. I know their past teachers have taught these concepts, but for some reason they are not retaining the information.

    I can't thank you enough for asking this question. I think it is important for all teachers to know what the kids have learned in past grades as well as what they need to know for success in the future grades. Lucky for me the school I work in is pre-k through 8th grade. There is only one teacher per grade except 7th and 8th, and the 2 of us work as a team. We can easily keep tabs on what the kids are learning that we will be getting.

    Thanks again for asking.
