Writing is something we do every day in my class because I want the kids to not only learn how to write, but how to become writers. I want them to, as Ann Patchett said, write their way into a better life. Through writing the kids are working to express their ideas and opinions. They are working to use their education to change their lives. They are working to understand that poverty does not define who they become.
