Write to Change the World: Challenge Based Learning for Persuasive Writing
One Best Thing
Persuasive writing skills can be connected to purposeful experiences through the process of Challenge Based Learning. Students choose topics that personally matter to them and create written solutions to change people’s perceptions, thereby using their writing to “change the world.” Students not only develop persuasive writing and speaking skills, but also develop important skills in teamwork, initiative, and innovative thinking. Most importantly, students are transformed into activists doing meaningful work that carries on long after the last exam is scored.
Writing with Purpose!
