I never learn. Before I left on Thanksgiving break, I had my students mark an argument. I wanted them to underline claims in the text and bracket evidence. From what I could see, my students nailed it! They were all engaged. They were all drawing underlines and placing brackets around textual material. I was so happy and ready for break.
I have been a classroom teacher for 15 years and have taught low socio-economic populations and students from affluent neighborhoods. When it comes to state tests, I have worked in failing schools and top performing, award winning schools.
