3rd-4th Grade Gifted Education at Anne M. Jeans Elementary in Burr Ridge, IL

Favorite ThinkCERCA Features: My favorite feature of the lessons is that they are structured to guide students, step-by-step, to craft evidence based persuasive essays. The “Build an Argument” step is particularly useful for prompting young writers to reflect on their thinking and use reasoning to establish logical connections between claims and evidence.
