After that, students began a writing piece about which vulnerable group they were especially passionate about and how they could support them better. The results were very touching.
Students are either finished or near-finished their paragraphs and they're wonderful. I am so proud of my class. I think this is their finest work yet. They were charged with not only writing a paragraph with key content information, but they also had to implement feedback from earlier tasks and pay attention to conventions. This is a "complete package", if you will. I'm going to display their work in our room for a week or two and then I'll send it home to be shared with families.
