April 28, 2022

Joel Garza, High School English Teach in Dallas Texas, gives us an idea of how instruction has evolved and progressed in his classroom over his 15 year career. He is joined by Shelley Rodrigo, Senior Director of the writing program at the University of Arizona, and VP of the National Council of Teachers of English. Their enlightening dialogue helps us understand how to better prepare students for success with college and career writing expectations.
