Summary: We were joined by three teacher-leaders from NWP's College-Ready Writers Program (CRWP) for a discussion about Extended Research Argument and its role in empowering students to be positive, active, solution-oriented citizens. Our guests also talked about the CRWP resources developed to teach argument writing.


Excerpt from Show

Casey Olsen —High School English Teacher in Columbus, MT; Co-Director of the Montana Writing Project; and College-Ready Writers Program Leadership Team Member:

I joined this effort because I wanted to help my students understand the complexity behind the issues in the news so that they could find their place and voice in the conversation surrounding those issues, and I wanted to grow in my ability to teach students how to move beyond opinions to informed arguments."
