One World Education believes that students should write to be read, in addition to earning a grade. We select and publish around 1% of the exemplary writing from Student Ambassadors who completed the One World Program in order to model grade-level writing and to create a forum for peer-to-peer learning. Additionally, every student-authored essay is accompanied by a Reflection Experience, which is a series of content and reading comprehension assessments.
