Questions

Subject: Writing

Question:

Are writing skills still important today?

Laura C.
Answer:

In a world where so much of our communication is non-verbal, good writing skills really are important. When you send an email, your resume' or a cover letter, what you say and how you say it are important. Employers very often say that good writing skill impresses them more than previous knowledge. Writing can be your ticket to better careers and communication.

Question:

What makes something great literature?

Answer:

I believe that great literature can be found in many genres and from many ages. While I will never say that Shakespeare or Tennyson are not important, I find equal validity and importance in a writer like Alice Walker. We need to broaden the definition of what makes great literature.

Subject: English

Answer:

English, the Humanities, are still important into today's world precisely because they teach you how to think, not what to think. While STEM emphasis is important, understanding English and the Humanities will allow your creativity and innovation to shine through.
