Speaking Worlds 4 is the latest installment of an ambitious collaborative literacy project between three schools within New York City’s GED Plus program and Teachers College Columbia University’s Student Press Initiative (SPI). Exploring this book, you will find compelling stories from students writing informed personal essays ranging from critical pieces on media, to personal essays centered on the conflicts of change and immigration. These students worked for more than two months in collaboration with SPI educators and GED Plus teachers to explore their stories in context with the world, to situate themselves within the world, and select one of their stories to focus on for publication. They dove deeply into the writer’s process of drafting and expanding their work, reading and analyzing texts, and editing and honing their words into the poignant essays you see in this powerful anthology.
