Academic competence rests on three complex skill sets. One is literacy skills; students’ fluency in reading, writing, and speaking have an enormous influence on their success in school. Written expression is a literacy skill. The other two skill sets that lead to academic competence are study skills and self-regulation and self-efficacy skills. To be effective with all of our students, and particularly those who struggle with written expression, we need to be familiar with the skills that create academic competence and their interrelationships.
