Amazing supplemental writing tool!

The customization of which readings an educator selects, how and what questions are asked, and the rubric's wording is great for educators supplementing their assignments or incorporating someone else's materials, enabling less time for curating. The formatting can be modeled after tests like the SAT, which is very practical because $7 for an entire year is significantly cheaper than what parents are willing to pay for SAT prep. Offering sample sentence starters for anonymous peer feedback is helpful because some students may be able to recognize when something is off about the wording, grammar, etc of a student's writing, but unclear how to address it in a constructive way. While annotating the reading passage, it would be helpful for this resource to have a pop-up dictionary, especially for ELL students who want to read the reading in English instead of the one offered in Spanish. Overall, this seems like a great resource!

This app does great job in organizing the work of students and easy to track students writing progress and the comments that they write. This is great for checking the progress of the students and very accessible for the teachers to give clear instruction

It is important to find a tool that is both beneficial to students and teachers and I believe that this app is the great candidate for connecting students and teachers.
