GTI Launches Writing Skills Booklet

GTI is delighted to announce an exciting new publication which focuses its attention on a core issue that underpins so much of what education is about – the skill of writing. There is no denying that the deluge of information that is available to us in the digital age can compromise our ability to write correctly and concisely. It is for this reason that GTI has embraced the notion of literacy in the classroom to its full capacity by creating a user friendly product.
