TTT 10.07.2020 Katherine Schulten on Raising Student Voices: Ways to Help Students Write Better Argument Essays

Author: Teachers Teaching Teachers

This week on TTT we return to our regularly scheduled meetings on Wednesday evenings with a DOUBLE HEADER!

Join Katherine Schulten @KSchulten from the New York Times Learning Network on Wednesday evening, October 7th at 8E/7C/6M/5P (Note that this is an hour earlier than when we usually meet.)
Katherine will be leading us in a workshop and a conversation using her recently published books:

STUDENT VOICE: 100 Argument Essays by Teens on Issues that Matter to Them
+ RAISING STUDENT VOICE: 35 Ways to Help Students Write Better Argument Essays

At a time when examples of “student voice” are everywhere, from Greta Thunberg to the Parkland students to the teenagers in the streets of Hong Kong, the argument writing that students study in school is still almost entirely written by adults. It is a wholly different experience for teenagers to study the work of their peers. It’s relatable. It’s relevant. And it doesn’t feel like an untouchable ideal.
Join our conversation with Katherine Schulten about her new books on TTT this coming Wednesday evening, October 7 at 8E/7C/6M/5P.
Get both books, if you can, and join us an hour before the Vice-Presidential Debate on Wednesday.

Then at 9E/8C/7M/6P let's watch the debate together on NowComment! Join our small, persistent effort to build understanding and community around the 2020 Debates.

Annotating the 2020 Debates
An invitation to comment on the live streams to build understanding and community

We look forward to seeing you at https://teachersteachingteachers on Wednesday evening, October 7th at 8E/7C/6M/5P for a TTT DOUBLE HEADER!
