Students at my school are new arrivals in the United States; most of my 11th graders have lived in the U.S. for 2-6 years before I meet them. Language and culture from around the world are represented in our classroom. Writing is an even more daunting task for newcomers learning English than it was for my students born and raised in the U.S., but through daily writing, exploring their interests and lives, and regular read-alouds, my students have made great progress as writers. Most importantly, they don't hold onto that fear and aversion; many of my students come to like writing and feel proud of their work.
