How I Use It
I use this app on days that I have my students write in their journals. I use AppleTV to project the prompt from my iPad for the class. The students have responded positively to the prompts. Visually, the prompts appeal to the students. The topics themselves are varied, and they are items that interest my ninth-grade students. I'm not sure if it a "teaching tool," but it is certainly a playground for ideas. It is best to review prompts ahead of time and adapt them when necessary. Some concepts might not be appropriate for all audiences.
This app is a fun tool to get students writing in class. A few times a month, students will write in their journals using the prompts provided. Some prompts are silly and rather juvenile, but you should be able to find some that appeal to your classes.
