The National Writing Project sent us a new book Keep it R.E.A.L.: Relevant, Engaging, and Affirming Literacy for Adolescent English Literature by Mary Amanda Stewart, published in 2017 by Teachers College Press and the NWP. This is a great book for those looking to support "English learners in a way that honors and leverages their native languages and cultures." Let Kelly Sassi know if you would like to review this book for the blog.

It’s Super Bowl weekend. Fun fact: This year’s game is in Minneapolis, just a stone’s throw from our RRVWP site. For the last few years, the company that makes Doritos has run a contest for amateur marketers to create an ad for Doritos. The winners see their commercial come to life during the big game. Write a contest-winning script for a commercial to sell Doritos. If you don’t like Doritos, substitute them with a food item of your choice.
