I started this website one week ago … some progress has been made. The Narrative and Poetry sections have advanced the most. I also added a .org to the site (I am very non-profit!), giving it its own name. As I mentioned before, this site is a work in progress.
A few weeks ago this article was published on the AASSA website showing the work we have been doing with writing in 8th grade here in Lima where I teach ESL (they call it EAL here- English as an Additional Language) and English Language Arts. I am always amazed at what students can do if given good instruction, lots of freedom and engaging work.
Take a look and see what you think.
