The metonymic adage the pen is mightier than the sword is rarely true without some purposeful effort. How can we make our writing and the writing of our students more effective? This session will be geared toward middle school and high school teachers, and presented from the perspective of 34 years in a high school English classroom. Ideas from the participants are welcome.
