Student Writer Spotlight: Bianca

Anna Starecheski

We get so many wonderful entries to our student writing contests! While it's always hard to pick, we choose one winning entry each month to celebrate here on the Scope Ideabook. We hope that sharing these entries with your students will encourage them to enter future contests and provide them with some helpful examples of successful entries.


Meet Scope's April 2018 Spotlight Winner: Bianca M.!

Scope's April narrative nonfiction feature, "The Children Who Escaped the Nazis," told the story of the thousands of Jewish children who were rescued during World War II. For the writing contest, we asked students to explain the challenges faced by the children of the Kindertransport, supporting their ideas with text evidence. Bianca’s entry stood out to us immediately. She sent in an organized slideshow outlining her central ideas and citing text evidence. But Bianca did more than present facts; she asked her readers to put themselves into the shoes of the children of the Kindertransport. The result was incredibly powerful. Great job, Bianca!
