Tired of plowing through the writing process while simultaneously feeling like you've left your secondary learners' genuine interests in the dust?

My friend... 

the time to hesitate is through...

I know it might feel like the world of digital media brings with it more woes 'n worries than you care to counter, but the truth is this...

Having a digital footprint in this era is no longer optional.

If we're gonna *truly* set our students up for success, we need to help them harness its power.


use argumentative writing tactics + persuasive technique to advocate for something they care deeply for or believe in.

Learning Targets

This activity will take learning well beyond the status-quo cognitive...

A comprehensive classroom project in a league. of. its own... 

  • It invites the use of social media but for academic purposes...and without the distraction.
  • It's intentionally designed to mimic the same set of decision-making skills students use when writing essays.
  • It builds a genuine foundation for formal writing by meeting students 'where they are' FIRST.

What Teachers are Saying...

"Jill Pavich gives you the permission and freedom to explore what you instinctively know to be true, as a teacher, while also showing you how to align that ingenuity and creativity with the demands of the systems we teachers must work within. She's what we've all been waiting for."

Now I get it if you're hesitant...leaning on digital platforms like social media for learning?!  Sounds suspect, right?

But here's the thing...

Just because WE didn't grow up knowing how to leverage online platforms for academic and professional reasons (I had to teach myself that!) doesn't mean our students don't deserve this know-how.

For our learners, having a digital footprint is no longer an *option*.

Question is: what role will YOU play in helping them shape it?

Communicating online involves reading, writing, using your own voice, and listening to those of others. As secondary ELA teachers, this is *definitely* our department!
