In order to write effectively, students need to become adept at marshaling appropriate evidence and presenting that evidence in a manner their audience will find both compelling and convincing. How do you help students acquire this skill? How do you employ writing in your own life?
What mentor texts have you found valuable for modeling powerful writing? Our theme echoes that of the Asilomar 68 conference.
September 2019 Issue
Due Date: August 1, 2019
LETTERS TO A NEW TEACHER
