Dear Readers,

Please check out our new Opinion Poll on Social Media and the Student-Teacher relationship and cast your vote by the end of September 2013. As you know …

your opinion counts

Our August 2013 poll was about Children who are Reluctant to Write:

Most children are reluctant to write because they are not interested in the topics they are assigned by their teacher.

• I agree. The boring and unimaginative topics that they are assigned can sap the motivation of even the most eager writers. (74%, 40 Votes)

• I disagree. Interesting essays can be written about nearly every topic and children who are reluctant to write frequently display poor writing skills, such as bad spellings and incorrect grammar. (26%, 14 Votes)

The result of the poll was unambiguous. The respondents, who believe that children are averse to writing because they are assigned uninspiring topics, lead the result with ¾ of the votes. On the other hand, those who believe that children are reluctant to write because they have poor writing skills trailed behind with ¼ of the votes.
