DESCRIPTION:   This past year the AWP focused on source-based argument writing using materials developed through the National Writing Project and materials developed by teacher consultants in the AWP.  Our new presentations this year are focused on research and persuasive writing.  Students think about debatable topics and then read and respond to a series of articles addressing the issue.  They are given new tools to use both for analysis, and for writing their own persuasive papers.
