Reflection: Relevance Using an Oreo to Craft an Argument Part 1 - Section 2: Lesson


I like this assignment because it is authentic.  My students will actually see results from what they do. Obviously, that is a rare find.  Too often, they know their work is for a fictional audience and it take away the authenticity that is needed in writing.

My students did earn that reading day - not because their arguments were perfect, but bacuse the effort was there and I wanted to prove a point.  Even a middle school student can create change with their words and thoughts.  Where I stand as their teacher, that is a big deal!
