Abstract

I am using a Likert scale survey, as well as a written questionnaire, to determine if high school freshman (in two of the freshman classes I teach) believe writing skills are necessary in the workplace and/or college. This research is important because if educators can better understand what individual students believe about writing, as well as understand their beliefs about the necessities of writing after high school, teachers could be better prepared to bridge the gap between today’s young adults and the experienced, trained, and capable workers they should ideally become.
