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 Heritage Middle School 8th grader, Dana Williams, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-Ws! (Writers-of-the-Week).
Dana was presented with a certificate of achievement and allowed to choose a prize from the Writer’s Toolbox. Her teacher, Mrs. Elizabeth Joki, submitted her essay because “Dana's informative essay on the Impact of Slavery shows her in-depth knowledge of the topic and her ability to cite textual evidence from more than one resource.”
Dana will be invited to read from her essay at an upcoming board of education meeting.
