How I Use It
I use it daily for journal entries that receive immediate feedback from me. Each English class begins with students logging onto the site for a short, daily writing that we call a 'bell ringer'. This gets the kids used to the program and keeps them doing some kind of writing daily that they always have access to, and can look back and revise.
We also use it as a way for writings to be edited and critiqued by small groups in our classes, or even for larger writing projects.
I love this product. It looks cool, the kids love it, and to be frank, it makes my job so much easier when the kids are excited about writing. The fact that we have students who are looking forward to the writing process (or at the very least not complaining!) makes this a great app to use.
