We teachers of English and other languages ought to run and embark on kind of a campaign to teach our students three basic things:
writing on their textbooks and activity books with a crayon or pencil (which can be erased and corrected),
writing neat and with a clean handwriting,
and not scribbling on the book margins.
They seem little things, and they are, but also they’re so educative.
Besides the same books could be passed on to their younger siblings or other poor students.
Of course the thing changes with tablets, but I would hold up what I just said. / Photo from: letter_writing www salon com
