WRITING (Updated November 2013):


The new GED 2014 test demands that our students write evidence-based position papers (argumentative writing), analyzing and synthesizing an argument with evidence from presented documents.  Various writing strategies, and all genres of writing (and reading) are helpful in supporting instruction for agile writers.
