BIC has a wonderful “Fight for your Write” initiative.
Amid numerous technological advancements, there has been an overall decreased focus on writing in U.S. schools. So BIC, along with literary advocate and education expert Pam Allyn, has launched a crusade to save handwriting: “Fight For Your Write.” This crusade’s mission is to energize parents and educators about the importance of writing and its continued benefits for children. According to Allyn, writing fosters children’s emotional growth, helps develop critical thinking skills and improves academic achievement.
In support of the mission, BIC has launched http://www.BICFightForYourWrite.com, which offers information about the importance of writing and provides parents with ideas and activities to encourage writing in their home. BIC has also partnered with AdoptAClassroom.org, a not-for-profit organization with the mission to increase student success by empowering teachers and providing them with resources for their classrooms.
When you visit http://www.BICFightForYourWrite.com you are invited to sign a petition to encourage handwriting. In return for each e-signature on the petition, from July 15, 2014 through August 12, 2014, BIC will donate one pen or pencil to a child in need (a minimum donation of 50,000 pencils or pens up to a donation of 100,000 pencils or pens) in school districts that have been identified by AdoptAClassroom.org.
