Students participate in a lot of very effective written communication outside of school. How can we build on these skills to improve their writing for all audiences? We will look at texting, chatting (backchannels) social networks like Facebook, individual student blogs, etc. and discuss how these tools can be use to help students meet the Common Core State Standards for writing.
