Writing for Justice – Persuasion from the Inside Out

Writing for Justice – Persuasion from the Inside Out

I highly recommend this article by Mark Hansen because it doesn’t just talk about how to engage students in issues related to social justice.  This teacher has thought hard about how to connect the sense of passion students feel when thinking about social issues to their communication / writing / school work.

Hansen shows that this sort of work requires careful thinking  and a period of time to develop the connections between social justice and students as actors in their families and communities.
