Articles of the Week (AoW)
Please note that, as I explain in-depth in this blog post, I take no credit for coming up with the article of the week (AoW) assignment. Kelly Gallagher (or, as I sometimes call him, The Gallagher) is the man who first introduced me to the idea through his must-read book Readicide. Thus, anything I share about my classroom’s experiences with AoWs, any theories or experiments I try out with the assignment, and any success my students or I have with it thoroughly and ultimately traces back to Kelly’s work. Here’s the list from this school year: “”Follow Your Bliss” Advice,” from The Week. If you have an AoW you’ve used this year that you’d like to share, contact me — I’d love to post it for the good of the community. Here’s the list for this school year: “American Prisoner in North Korea Requests Rescue,” by Choe Sang-Hun for the New York Times. Below is a list of articles I prepared for the 2012-2013 school year. Ready to Dominate Articles of the Week?
