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 senior, Saul Cruz Silva, who was selected as the next PCLS W-o-Ws! (Writers-of-the-Week).
Saul was presented with a certificate of achievement and allowed to choose a prize from the Writer’s Toolbox. His teacher, Mrs. Samantha Schatz, submitted the transcript of his persuasive speech because “He crafted his attention-catching introduction around the anecdote model that we studied in class. He also created well-thought out points to try and convince his audience of his position. His speech ended with a call-to-action to try and get the principal's support for his suggestion.”
Saul will be invited to read from his essay at an upcoming board of education meeting.
