7% of US teens do not do any writing in their English classes
82% teens say that the writing assignments they do for school typically range from a paragraph to around one page in length, according to Pew Internet Project. 12% say that most of their writing involves longer pieces of 2-5 pages. 3% of teens say that most of their school writing involves major writing assignments of 5 pages or more in length. This trend is even more sharply delineated outside of English courses. In classes other than English, 78% of students say they usually write shorter pieces of a page or less, and 7% say they do no writing at all in these courses.
