Students in Kathryn Dodd’s eighth-grade English classes at Edmund W. Miles Middle School celebrated the completion of their position papers during a publishing party.

With a little over a week to complete the writing assignment, students were responsible for selecting a topic, conducting research and developing a claim to support an argument. Eighth-graders used Chromebooks to write their papers and find at least three articles that supported their claim. The young writers submitted their paper through Google Classroom where they edited and revised their essay until it was ready for publishing.

During the party, students shared the topic of their papers and position on the issue with their peers. They then placed their papers on a bulletin board in the classroom titled “Successful, Accomplished and Published.” To commemorate their writing success, Dodd presented the students with a Certificate for Publication.
