Cheers to Berit for column on decline of writing skills
I was so happy to read the article written by Berit Ramstad Skoyles on the decline of writing skills.
All the things she mentioned have bothered me for a long time and, unfortunately, I don't see much improvement on the horizon.
If you didn't learn these skills in school, there is no need to despair. There are many places to garner the information you need. The public library, workbooks available in chain and book stores and the web are good places to begin.
Berit, thank you for bringing this to our attention. Perhaps the fact that this is coming from one of their peers will impact the student population. I hope so. -- Norma Haack, Detroit Lakes
