Many of today's high-stakes tests require students to write essays and justify their responses by including or referencing primary source documents that support their statements. Join Dr. Michelle Cheasty-Christ as she explores how to expose students to primary source documents, incorporate quotes in writing, and cite those sources. In addition to sharing various primary source sites, she will discuss how to evaluate sources to determine if they are scholarly sources. Michelle will also discuss how to get students involved with peer reviews to ensure information is documented and cited appropriately. You will also learn how to develop performance tasks that students can use to practice writing for the new writing assessments.

I was very impressed with all of Dr. Cheasty informative information of writing. I liked that she a rubric with excellent information for students to follow when writing a essay. I enjoyed the websites and resources where students can use such as magazine, newspaper etc. I liked the ideas of providing other options such as when a student breaks an arms how she or he can continue to work on their essay.
