Even though many of us experience the Sunday night blues, we always have #engchat on Monday nights to help kick off our week!
Rebekah and I hope you will join us THIS Monday, March 28 at 7PM for an #engchat discussion on teaching analytical writing.

How can we help students use their interests and the places in which they truly are content experts to learn the universal skills of analysis?
