    I forgot to say that the reason I like this is I happen to be in the middle of a comparison/contrast essay unit with developing college writers, so this offered some good insight.

Digital slidebooks for student creativity, self-expression, and imagination - Biteslide - 0 views

    This seems similar to the Smilemakers website that was talked about in Discovery Education-related links tab, but this one isn't free. I think either would be good to make presentations, such as my student's Habitat projects, more interactive.

      Could use this as a place to share discussions and create an online community within the classroom. A little more professional than Edmodo so the students don't treat it like Facebook

  • Student Portfolios

    Each student cultivates a unique online space to showcase their best work, and teachers assess performance as it progresses.

    Student groups collaborate on projects that address real-world questions, and share their findings with a real-world audience.

  • Student Assignments

    Seems like a great way to great a class site. Would work for communication and have full access. Not sure what the cost break down would be like for a district in comparison to other online environments.
    Wikis can enrich the writing classroom by providing fun ways for students to collaborate and learn from each other.

Purdue OWL: Starting the Writing Process - 0 views

      • Topic and audience are often very intertwined and work to inform each other. Start with a broad view of your topic such as skateboarding, pollution, or the novel Jane Eyre and then try to focus or refine your topic into a concise thesis statement by thinking about your audience. Here are some questions you can ask yourself about audience:

        • Who is the audience for your writing?
        • Do you think your audience is interested in the topic? Why or why not?
        • Why should your audience be interested in this topic?
        • What does your audience already know about this topic?
        • What does your audience need to know about this topic?
        • What experiences has your audience had that would influence them on this topic?
        • What do you hope the audience will gain from your text?
    Here's a list of questions to ask ourselves about the audience for a piece of writing we are doing. The better we can understand who that audience is the more effective our writing will be

Letters of Note: C. S. Lewis on Writing - 4 views

  • What really matters is:–

    1. Always try to use the language so as to make quite clear what you mean and make sure your sentence couldn't mean anything else.

    2. Always prefer the plain direct word to the long, vague one. Don't implement promises, but keep them.

    3. Never use abstract nouns when concrete ones will do. If you mean "More people died" don't say "Mortality rose."

    4. In writing. Don't use adjectives which merely tell us how you want us to feel about the thing you are describing. I mean, instead of telling us a thing was "terrible," describe it so that we'll be terrified. Don't say it was "delightful"; make us say "delightful" when we've read the description. You see, all those words (horrifying, wonderful, hideous, exquisite) are only like saying to your readers, "Please will you do my job for me."

    5. Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite.
