Celebrate powerful student argument writing in this NWP Radio CoLab featuring contest-winning student arguments. Katherine Schulten—a former a high school English teacher, New York City Writing Project teacher-leader, and the editor of the New York Times Learning Network— collected one hundred essays that were winners or runners up in the New York Times Learning Network’s argument writing contest. They are published in Student Voice. Katherine talks with Tom Fox about her work at the New York Times Learning Network, the origins of the essays, and how they were selected for the book. Best of all, she reads selections that show students’ passion, reason, and style.
This CoLab is the first of a two-part series. The second CoLab features Katherine talking with four NWP teachers.
