Well, this is embarrassing. Something went wrong when posting your comment. Care to try again?

    Unsiloing content areas from each other is so critical. The point that "every course requires students to practice their writing skills," is so true. And, like the article says, "Whether it’s creating an essay, speech, or another product, students engage in writing beyond English Language Arts’ classes. Although learning how to write well is a critical skill to master, it’s not exclusive to teaching students how to answer brief constructed responses. Social Studies classes provide the opportunity to connect both, writing skills and historical knowledge." Absolutely true. Thanks for sharing.
