Preparing for National Association of Bilingual Educators in Denver

Well, my students rose to my expectations I am proud to say. The work that they are almost done with will accompany me to Denver to share with teachers at my presentation. Thanks to the very friendly formats of the website www.readwritethink.org, they were able to successfully tackle the format of a persuasive essay. Are they perfect examples of this writing style? Of course not, but they are beginning to feel more comfortable writing them. The counter-argument is still a problem for many, but with more practice, they will eventually have enough writing skills to do a decent job on the high school exit exam (CAHSEE).

  1. Denver should be a great conference, plus one of my sisters lives there! I'm really looking forward to the networking and exhibits as well as presentations, etc. See you there!
