The PCLS Curriculum Department/Teaching and Learning Team developed the W-o-W! Program to recognize the hard work and creativity of PCLS students.
In an effort to help build a community of writers, the team encourages schools to display the W-o-W’s work and asks teachers to use the W-o-W’s work as part of their writing instruction.
Congratulations to Harvey High School 12th grader Isaias Mendez Zarate, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-W! (Writer-of-the-Week.)
Isaias was presented with a certificate of achievement and allowed to choose a prize from the Writer’s Toolbox. Isaias’ English teacher, Mrs. Samantha Schatz, submitted his poem, because “We are reading the play, A Raisin in the Sun, and students were asked to write a Bio Poem about one of the characters. Isaias chose exceptional adjectives (to describe his chosen character) that convey how she feels about life and her family.”
Isaias will be invited to read his bio poem at an upcoming Board of Education meeting.
