Writing is a complex skill which most students actually need in order to successfully go through college. Because everything is based on writing during academic years, a student who possesses good writing skills will automatically do better at everything. This includes exams, essays, assignments, and so on. As a teacher, you can help each and every student improve writing skills themselves, as well as acquire new skills and become a better individual by the end of their time spent in college.
William Strunk Jr., author of Elements of Style, talks here about the secret to improving writing as being a focus on making every word count:
“Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that every word tell.”
