NWP Radio—Extended Research Argument

March 24, 2016

The ultimate goal for a student argument writer is a self-driven exploration of an issue that is important to them. This exploration is one where they inquire into a conversation, find their place in it, and contribute their voice.

As part of NWP's College-Ready Writers Program (CRWP) we have developed a set of resources that are focused on supporting teachers in teaching the Extended Research Argument. Join us for a conversation with three CRWP teacher-leaders who will discuss the Extended Research Argument and its role in empowering students to be positive, active, solution-oriented citizens.
