TIP: Want to inspire your students? The key is to write out their thoughts. We as educators have wonderful discussions with our students. But who is there to document it? There has to be a scribe - even in the discussions. If a student says something thought provoking, write it down and hand it back to them. Show your students what they said. You may find them asking "Did I say that?". The answer is yes, because they've got it in them. You just have to write it down.

Happy Holidays to all my friends and colleagues in education.

I know this year continues to be challenging, and I know my words pale in comparison to your hard work and daily uphill battles. I'm especially concerned at this time of year with grades due, a daunting task with all the variables.

I say prayers every night for the work we do to guide our children to become productive global citizens, and I believe in you and your diligence through these tough times. I have immense respect and admiration for you, and I'm here for you if you need me -- for guidance, for moral support, or for a much needed laugh together. Sending you my love and admiration this holiday season. Always, Dr. Louis

Argumentation — Concrete Details and Commentary That Persuade

Academic writing is made up of sentences of concrete detail and commentary, and using both wisely makes your argument sound sophisticated.

Arguing Well and For the Good — An Overview of Argumentation

Argumentation is simply a part of life. And while some people think that to argue is to fight, educated people, such as yourself, understand that arguing is really about communicating what you want, what’s important to you, and what’s good for those around you – without raising your voice, without fighting, without losing a friend, a partner, a spouse, or a job! An intelligent person, a person of respect argues well.

Arguing Well and For the Good of Society: A Critical Educational Skill

Being able to argue well is a critical skill -- with friends and family, with colleagues, and certainly during political campaigns. This skill is also an integral component of educational standards in every state across the country.

The Jane Schaffer Academic Writing Program® teaches argumentation in two formats: (1) a virtual learning series for teachers to instruct their students in grade levels 6-12; and, (2) a virtual learning series for master teachers and/or district coaches and specialists to become OnSite JSWP Trainers for their teachers' continuous cycle of learning.

Both opportunities are coming up in November!

Professional Development The Formulaic Writing

Structure Is a Good Thing
In "How Teens’ Brains Are Different," Anthony Rebora, Editor-in-Chief of Educational Leadership, discusses psychologist Thomas Armstrong's findings about the Prefrontal Cortex. Armstrong indicates that functions that develop in the teenage years include decision-making, planning, prioritizing, organizing, and strategizing" (ASCD). With the Jane Schaffer Writing Program®, we ask students to perform these functions as they learn to write, organizing their thoughts in a structure that is designed to develop their cognitive process not quell their creativity! Our goal is to help students master the skill of understanding the difference between evidence and analysis. We begin this process with a structure.

Had a wonderful time working with this great group of teachers from Rio Grande Valley Schools yesterday! We scored expository and persuasive essays and marveled at the growth the students have shown this year as they’ve all worked to implement what they’ve learned! ❤️
The JSWP is the absolute BEST way to help students get a VISUAL of where they are in their writing!!! Our brains naturally seek PATTERNS in order to make sense of the world in which we live. The current "anti-formulaic" education trend is doing a HUGE DISSERVICE to our kiddos because too many do not understand that throughout the course of history the study of English and Literature has depended heavily upon recognizing patterns and using those patterns and connections to deepen our understanding and enrich our own writing. The Jane Schaffer method provides students with a pattern framework that enables them to make powerful and meaningful improvements in their own writing.
The Jane Schaffer Writing Program training has been one of the best programs I’ve ever attended. Dr. Deborah Louis is one of the most most down to earth people you’ll ever meet. #grammarqueen #brilliantwriter #calabasascalifornia
We love these success stories!
