Common Core Practice | Young Voters, College Rankings and Food Journeys

This week, The Learning Network's Common Core Practice writing prompts include two from the classroom of Sarah Gross and Jonathan Olsen, and a third that uses Room for Debate, a feature of The Times Opinion Pages.

The first is an argumentative task regarding the Presidential campaigns' use of social media.

The second, also argumentative, prompts students to write about whether or not the college ranking system is useful.

Finally, a narrative writing prompt asks students to consider the journey of fresh food to our table.

Note, from the website: "The #art4me hashtag suggested in this feature last week is alive and well on Twitter. Learn more here, then join the conversation by posting a photo of the art in your life."
