"...Students need to be taught that the act of writing is intrinsically valuable to them. It crystallizes one's thoughts in a way that nothing else can. As a physicist, I find that I often learn more from writing papers and proposals than I do from working in the laboratory. I rarely find writing easy, but I always find it rewarding."
Louis Bloomfield, Professor of Physics, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA
"You might find it interesting that for the last two years, our school has won the Junior Achievement Essay competition for the state of Virginia, and we have been using the funds from that award to help pay for MyAccess. We have had individual student winners each of the last two years (including a first place winner for the DC region who won a $20,000 scholarship for his essay), and the school has won $6,000 each of the last two years for our level of school-wide participation and quality. MyAccess has become an integral part of our writing program throughout our department. In a sense, using the program has been "paying dividends" which we have been able to channel back into funding our continued use of the program."
Christopher Cuozzo, Ph.D, English Department Chair, Woodgrove High School
