Northern California Writing Project Teacher-Consultant Connects Math and Literacy

Junior high math teacher Susan Rickey helps her students connect math and argument writing, and will soon begin helping other teachers do the same as an NCWP facilitator.

Excerpt

"The goal of the writing project will be teaching younger students how to make an argument and then support it with evidence. She explained that the students come up with a claim based on a subject, and then they are tasked with writing in support of that claim utilizing facts and trustworthy evidence.

She noted that so far, her students have really enjoyed the process."
