Writing skills are an important part of communication. It also provides guides for specific pieces of writing that you may need to produce, whether at school, university, or in the work place.
Understanding that writing is one of the most important transferable skills, Mr. Durgesh Kr. Singh, English Teacher, taught the students of Grade 6 to write a biography. They prepared a chart paper presentation of Nelson Mandela’s biography following which they gave a short oral presentation on Mandela’s life based on their chart paper presentation.
