The target group for this practicum was 17 community college students. The problem for this practicum is that many students are unable to communicate through writing due to a lack of ability to stay on task or grasp the writing process, resulting in low final grade scores for those students. The solution strategy, a unique approach entitled "Type" Writing," involved pre- and post-surveys with classroom methods and writing assignments keyed to the learning types of the students as identified using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. The students who completed the program experienced improved writing skill growth as shown by pre- and post-writing surveys and increased writing awareness as shown by pre- and post-writing-awareness surveys. While pre-test showed that writing skill readiness would have earned 100 per cent of the target group a failing grade, post-test demonstrated that all 17 students in the target group could earn grades of C or above.
