Top 5 Infographics of the Week: The Importance of Writing

It's something you do everyday, yet you probably take it for granted. In fact, your day depends on it. Writing and reading are some of the most fundamental skills in our lives and it is especially crucial to students and those in the workforce. Studies have shown that workers spend an average of 2.6 hours per day reading and responding to emails. That adds up to about 27 days per year! Reading and writing is clearly a big part of our life, yet literacy rates have been stagnant in the US for the past 10 years. Currently 32 million adults in the US cannot read, and it isn't showing any signs of improving. So today we're showing some infographics about the importance of writing, whether it be offering tips about note-taking, getting kids more engaged with books, or tackling the decline in literacy in America. Take a moment out of your day and just read.

  • Taking notes by hand combats forgetfulness by nearly 80%. 
  • Despite the benefits of note taking, only 65.5% of students take notes during class.
