Teaching Multicultural Literature: A Workshop for the Middle Grades

Social Justice and Action: Alma Flor Ada, Pam Muñoz Ryan, and Paul Yee 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?
