How I Use It
This app/site is amazing. What's not to love? We use this for a lot of elements. I have students upload their papers into this before handing in. I like for them to write without it so they can learn how to proof after the writing process. Students are able to see growth in their writing because they will have fewer and fewer mistakes. My favorite aspect is the explanation of the grammatical errors.
This app/site can give more instantaneous feedback than I can. Instead of wasting my time on correcting grammar, the students are able to really cut down on the mistakes BEFORE handing in. This allows me to focus on the content and really hone in on their writing styles and the structure. It saves me so much time, while still giving students the feedback they need to improve. It's an excellent way to analyze other people's writing, too. I have used it to do mini-lessons on common errors and issues in writing. Endless possibilities exist in this rather robust app.
