Students attending the ESL Summer Enrichment Program at School No. 9 completed their Summer Reading Projects and learned one of Life's valuable lessons, the enormous persuasive power of their words.
When student Justina Anitului asked her ESL teacher Mrs. Orelien-Armstead if they could present their Summer Reading projects outside, instead of giving a "yes' or "no" answer, Mrs. Orelien-Armstead seized the opportunity to teach her class about persuasive writing. First students debated the issue and then wrote a persuasive paragraph convincing her why she should agree to allow them to present their reading projects outside.
After carefully analyzing students' writing, Mrs. Orelien-Armstead agreed and students successfully presented their reading projects to their peers outside. At the end of the lesson, she reminded all her students that words have power. They must choose them carefully and use them wisely.
