My sweet teaching friend Amanda is an all-around rock star. (You may remember her post this summer on our Careers Unit.) I am big time blessed to work with her and
steal borrow her ideas often. One of my recent favs was the idea of "Double Stuffed" Paragraphs for our argument essays. Check it out here (and sign up to follow her blog, My Shoe String Life, while you're at it!)
Any time you can have Oreo cookies and call it 'writing class' is a good time, right?! This simple acronym made a BIG impact on my students' work. Thanks, Amanda!
