Student Work

This student work section includes three letters written by Laura Alvarez's students in Workshop video 7. As a culminating project, the students wrote and revised persuasive letters to raise public awareness about the issues they examined. (See Teaching Strategies: Writing Letters for Social Action.)

As you review the student's work, consider the following questions:
  • What do you notice that this student did well?

  • What questions might you ask this student about his or her work?
Share your answers and read those of other workshop participants at Teacher-Talk.
