How I Use It
I haven't yet used this tool, but have watched the tutorial on the website. So far, I am impressed with what I've seen and looking forward to using the tool!
My Take
Mastering the art of persuasive writing is a struggle for many students; therefore, the fact that essays are scaffolded for students and students produce essays over a period of time is an asset for students. This tool would be great during whole class instruction, which would lead to discussions about the features of a persuasive. After students have grasped the features of a persuasive, then independent or group tasks would be assigned. Although quite useful, I have one concern! I am not yet sure if I would be able to add my own topics.
