How I Use It
I provide students with the opportunity to ask questions throughout the writing process but I encourage them to work together and with Prompts at any point when they feel their writing momentum slowing. Prompts is able to initiate the momentum, and then the students are more easily able to keep it going!
This program provides many of the same types of prompts that teachers would give students, but it effectively assists students by guiding them through steps without having to have the teacher by their sides at all times. Also, since the prompts come from a program and not from a teacher, some students are more willing to consider the advice! Nice to have some validation. :)
