This week's "Weekly Reader" assignment involved essays from www.thisibelieve.com. Students chose their own essays and wrote responses. Their work this week was significantly better than their work before! In fact, I am so impressed with their depth of thought and analytical prowess. When I get the eportfolios figured out, you will be able to read some of them. These assignments keep them culturally literate and help them analyze the veracity of information they receive.
