Lesson 1: The Power of Our Writing
In this lesson students will reflect on the power of writing as they have discovered in this curriculum and prepare a portfolio of the writing they are most proud of.
Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. (Grade-specific expectations for writing types are defined in standards 1-3 above.)
Assess their individual and collective capacities to take action to address local, regional, and global problems, taking into account a range of possible levers of power, strategies, and potential outcomes.
