How to Grow Great Writers with Writable

 In Blog

With Writable, you can grow great writers no matter where you are in the writing journey. Choose whether you start with assessment, writing practice, guided feedback, or use a combination of Writable’s functionalities to support your students in becoming purposeful, proficient writers. Writable helps schools organize their writing program around the right instruction and feedback – for every teacher and student.

Assessment

By using Writable’s streamlined assessment features, you can organize your district writing program around an existing ELA curriculum, state rubrics, or district goals. Writable helps save time on growth monitoring, calibration, and instructional planning. You’ll get the data you need faster – to help schools improve their writing.

 

“We’ve developed a set of rubrics and professional development around our bi-annual benchmark assessment process in reading and writing. Writable was able to administer on-demand assessments using our writing rubrics, then help us save time on grading and instructional planning across ELA and Social Studies.”

– Elizabeth, 6-12 Curriculum Coordinator ELA, Social Studies, & Literacy, New Britain, CT

Practice

With 600+ assignments and prompts organized by genre, skill, state, or reading selection, Writable helps teachers focus their writing instruction by using guided practice, while saving time on grading and prep. For use in grades 3 -12, engage and motivate students using scaffolded writing practice, with every assignment being easily customizable to individual styles of instruction.

“I have seen a big growth in my student’s writing throughout the year using Writable. My students though have actually seen their improvement in writing and how enhanced their skills have become.”

– Val Bader, 7th Grade ELA Teacher, North Branch Public Schools, MI

Feedback

Move from grader to guide with Writable’s authentic feedback options. Choose from anonymous peer review, self reflection, teacher grading, or editing assist (coming soon!) – then scaffold the writing process, grade more efficiently and effectively, and support students or skills that need more attention. Research shows that better feedback leads to better revision, and revision drives increased motivation, metacognition, and student growth.

“The research is clear: providing students time for structured practice, coaching them to give quality feedback to one another, and engaging in meaningful revision can all help writers grow.”

– Dr. Troy Hicks, Professor of English & Education, Central Michigan University
