Students began their journey into the 5-paragraph essay while also learning about the best way to learn. We listened to a large portion of Cult of Pedagogy's podcast about the six most effective learning strategies, backed by cognitive science. We also learned about what topic sentences and theses are all about. We will be putting all of this together into 5-paragraph essays about these learning strategies, which will be shared with teachers in the school. Great learning all around! We also had a great writers group with Ellen on Wednesday, as always!
