How I Use It
I use Book Creator with my students as a way to have students practice creative writing, how-to writing, informational writing, and narrative writing. It is pretty intuitive, as students can easily add pictures to their stories, as well as change the style of text. Students can also add in maps, video, and create comics. Students are added to the class library via a class code, and they can read one another's books that are published to the class library.
My Take
I would recommend this website, as it provides students a creative way to publish their writing and gives them choices on how to personalize it with video, audio recordings, maps, pictures, etc. Students enjoy being able to read each other's books within the class library. The free version only allows you one class library with 40 books. However, you can archive this library after the student assignment is complete. Then you can just create another class library for free.
