Northwest ISD’s curriculum team has selected the district’s elementary Writers of the Month for March 2018, honoring two students for their academic capabilities.

This month’s honorees include Elizabeth Cohorn from Beck Elementary School and Raegan Evans from Peterson Elementary School. Each writer selected her favorite recent work to highlight for the award.

Elizabeth was chosen for her fiction story of a peacock and blackbird who become friends after starting off on the wrong foot. She said she wrote the story to share kindness and how being kind is better than being a bully. Raegan was selected for her story about her goal to visit Europe when she becomes a teenager. She said the story was written with a focus on figurative language, such as using “city of love” to describe Paris.

The district’s literacy coaches work with a group of campus teachers and administrators to select students who show exemplary writing performance or tremendous growth as writers. After students are chosen, each is asked to select his or her favorite work of writing and explain why that work was chosen.

Students are recognized by district educators as well as through the Northwest ISD English Language Arts program with a certificate of achievement.
