Readers 4SC

Listing Details
Detailed Information

Readers 4SC is an imaginative op-eds activity, where student-written articles on events from the fictional books they read that are published on our website.

Students who participate in our activity write an editorial (op-ed) article on an event in one of the books they’ve read as if they are currently living in that story. Through the activity, students are better able to understand persuasive writing by imagining what the potential perspectives of the time/region might have been in the story they’ve “entered”.

We provide lesson plans, resources, and a platform for teachers who want to integrate our argumentative writing course material into their classrooms..

Through this exercise, students will learn how to

develop strong thesis statements,
respond to counterarguments,
and think and write from an alternative perspective.
Overall, this project will foster not only strong analytical skills but also critical, empathetic skills necessary for becoming an effective civic leader.
