L2P 2.0 at Classroom 2.0 Live
- Resource Type:
Christina Cantrill from the National Writing Project joined this Classroom 2.0 webinar to give a sneak preview of the Letters to the Next President 2.0 project just before the August launch of the youth publishing site. View the full description for the webinar below.
What better way to engage in the current election than to support students researching, writing, and sharing about those things they are passionate about? And what if we did that in supportive classrooms where they can get underneath the rhetoric and productively discuss what matters most? Letters to the Next President 2.0 (letters2president.org) is designed by teachers, for teachers and students, to do just this, with a focus on youth civic participation, connected learning, and writing. Co-hosted by the National Writing Project and KQED, L2P 2.0 gathers resources and opportunities for educators to support this work in a range of classrooms and across disciplines. And now that it is August, we are on the verge of launching a youth publishing site for 13-18 year-olds that will remain open for signup by teachers and submissions by youth through to the election. Join us to find out how this all works and to think together about how we might design in support of youth participation in this project this fall.
