How I Use It
Wattpad is a website used for sharing original written pieces. It may be useful for young adult writers, but be careful- not all available content is appropriate for students. Please spend some time perusing the site to decided whether or not you should use it.
My Take
Older high school or college students may find the site useful, but there is little supervised attention from website creators. Comments from users may be very harsh, and/or inappropriate, and it appears that comments are unregulated. Use with caution. I find this site to be inappropriate for middle school students.
