This Week’s Blog Ideas: Write an Editorial; Enter the NYT Found Poem Challenge

This week’s blog ideas are inspired by current events, and by The Learning Center, a New York Times blog.

1.  Write Your Own Editorial

Do you have an opinion about something?  An editorial is a short piece of writing that expresses an opinion, supported by facts, and uses clear, direct language to persuade.  Follow this link to see what I mean…

Read examples of winning student editorials here, and write one of your own.  VAST will recognize strong editorials with a prize!


2.  Enter the Found Poem Challenge!

Post a Found Poem to the comments section of The Learning Center, and be sure to post a copy of it here, too.  All you need to know is here.
