 TTT#517 Argument is Everywhere - College-Ready Writers Program, LRNG Playlists, Youth Voices

Last week on Teachers Teaching Teachers (9pm ET/6pm PT on Wednesdays at http://edtechtalk.com/ttt) Christina Cantrill, Paul Allison, Joe Dillon, and National Writing Project Site Development Director Tom Fox @tomfoxchico reviewed teacher-consultant, Casey Olsen's @Mr_Olsen_Says LRNG playlist https://www.lrng.org/national-writing-project/playlist/argument-is-every...

On TTT, recently, we've been slowly, descriptively looking at the online, blended curriculum 20 teachers across the country have been building for their students on http://youthvoices.live as part of the DML Competition 6: Sandboxes for Learning https://www.hastac.org/competitions/winners/sandboxes-learning

TTT#516 Working together on LRNG Playlists, XPs, and Badges

We plan to continue this close reading of the LRNG playlists we are creating because we're finding that by looking slowly at one helps us know what to revise and build in our own playlists.  We are learning how to move our curriculum onto the LRNG learning platform that will allow for more choice, more connected learning in our classes and in after-school programs.

In this episode of Teachers Teaching Teachers, Casey Olsen asked us to give him feedback on a curriculum he has created using materials from the National Writing Project's College-Ready Writers Program https://sites.google.com/site/nwpcollegereadywritersprogram/

Here's how he describes his playlist for youth:

"Thoughtful citizens read, criticize, analyze, and create arguments daily---reading the paper, watching the news, surfing the internet, talking among friends, family, and co-workers.  These small moments in everyday life make up a strong democracy.  By exploring the XPs in this playlist, you will hone your skills to recognize and respond to the issues that surround you."

We welcome your further comments and responses.
