Yesterday I asked my class questions. On a sheet of paper I got them to write me their answers. They each wrote 11 lines of information for me.
I learned their names, ages, facts about their families etcetera. And I could see how well (or how poorly) they could form letters, write neatly, spell, and use correct grammar. I looked at 15 features of their writing.
Finally I asked what they needed to improve the most—reading, writing, speaking or listening. Ten people chose speaking, Three chose listening. Two chose reading. Zero people chose writing. And one person didn’t say.
