Kaunas Jonas Jablonskis Gymnasium Presentation “Teaching Writing in Secondary Education” In the past decade, writing has become more important than ever, as people spend more and more time communicating via the written word. On the other hand, teaching writing to digital natives at secondary education level has become a real challenge for teachers. Students tend to experiment with written words and structures by using abbreviated and simpler forms and therefore adapt language to their needs, while teachers want to focus on and draw the students’ attention to conventional linguistic units. The aim of this presentation is to share my personal experience of different ways of improving student writing skills. What to teach at school level and how to engage students in writing activities – are the main questions to be discussed.
