Writing is closely related to reading and requires the integration of the conventions of language.  Students in all grades need the opportunity to expand writing skills through utilization of the steps of the writing process and through a variety of writing activities and genres.  Moreover, the acquisition of grammar and usage skills is not an end in itself.  The real emphasis is the application of these skills by means of authentic writing experiences.
