Writer's Workbench On-Line: Instructional feedback that guides students to become better writers.

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
We will first provide a brief history of Writer’s Workbench and then demonstrate how easy it is to use on-line.  The new on-line version of Writer’s Workbench works with iPad’s, Chromebooks, Macintosh's, Linux, and Windows systems.  We will illustrate how WWB provides focused feedback with 26 unique analyses to allow teachers to have students work on their writing mechanics, one or two topics at a time.
We will show how students can grade their own compositions and be shown how to fix their errors; Writer’s Workbench guides students how to fix their problems without fixing them.
After the demonstration, Steve Wiersum will illustrate how the new Writer’s Workbench has been successful teaching writing mechanics at Glenbard West High School.
In conclusion, attendees can fill out forms that will provide a free trial (first for teachers, and if desirable, for complete classes).

This session will be hosted by Writer’s Workbench.
