The research project explores the underlying experiences and causes behind the aversion many K-12 students hold toward writing. Consisting of a questionnaire, individual interviews, and a focus group, the study delves into students’ feelings and attitudes toward writing— allowing their voices to be heard, in the hopes of improving future writing instruction in schools. With the exorbitant amounts spent on writing remediation constantly climbing, student apprehension toward writing is a problem that must be addressed. This study seeks answers to this problem from the people who should know the most about it—the students.
