Miami teacher to use Dana Meeker essay in her class

I’m a gifted teacher in Miami, Fla., and I read the Summit Daily News online almost every day.

I was so impressed by the essay from Frisco Elementary’s Dana Meeker (“Assets Writing Contest winners,” March 16), that I made a copy so I could read it to my class to show a perfect example of the writing process.

Her teachers should also be commended for teaching the writing process that has gained recognition for this student. I especially liked her conclusion in which she summarizes the details of her supporting statements.

I eagerly await to see other examples from the kids who live on the Summit to share with my kids who live by the ocean.

It also might be interesting, and very beneficial for the students, to have a weekly column in your paper where they can use the writing process to write their views of the world around them.
