Students in Mr. Block’s English language arts classes are learning to write persuasive and argumentative essays with the student-centered classroom approach called work-shopping. Using the writing process, students will create a persuasive essay for the following writing prompt: A group of teachers wants to go on vacation for spring break. Advise them where to go, and persuade them to go there. Work-shopping allows students to be available for each other to bounce ideas, proofread, edit, and even to have access to the Internet for researching ideas for the essay.
