Writing and literature
     Writing clearly and concisely is a skill that many struggle with throughout middle and high school, but through time and practice anyone can improve. Articulating our thoughts clearly to others is a priceless skill in every situation, whether it be writing an email to a teacher, finalizing college essays or finishing an essay for class.
     Though it may be difficult to know where to start, websites such as Scribendi provide informative podcasts, infographics, videos and articles about writing, while EDX offers free introductory courses for learning how to write and think critically at a college level.
