Transform your students into writers

5 steps on how to maximize students’ literacy growth

Writing involves more than basic skills mastery

There’s no debate that writing is a crucial skill, and in many cases, the basis for a first impression. From a young age, students begin learning the fundamentals of writing, starting with the basics of correct sentence structure, grammar, and punctuation. However, being an effective writer—a GOOD writer—goes well beyond the mastery of these skills. It requires the ability to organize thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and facts into a construct that gives simple words meaning.

WriteToLearn™ is an automated online literacy tool for building writing skills and developing reading comprehension. It supports classroom instruction, saves time, and provides immediate feedback to keep students engaged. Teachers can easily adjust WriteToLearn support tools and scoring parameters to modify passing thresholds and tailor assistance levels to individual student needs.
