Congratulations to Heritage Middle School sixth-grader Mariah Ledet, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-W! (Writer-of-the-Week). Her Social Studies teacher, Mrs. Kaplan, submitted her argumentative essay because “she did an excellent job referring to the article to support her argument. In general, her essays are well-written and extremely enjoyable to read.” Mariah was presented with a certificate of achievement and allowed to choose a prize from the Writer’s Toolbox.
Her essay can be read below.
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. Mariah was previously recognized for outstanding writing in Language Arts, and it is exciting to see her skills cross disciplines. Mariah will be invited to read her essay at an upcoming board of education meeting.
