Next Issue: May 2019
Theme: Write Now!

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.
