Writable helps teachers scaffold and motivate students to become purposeful, proficient writers, and it helps schools assess and monitor writing growth. We’re helping over 10,000 schools and districts organize their writing programs around the right instruction and feedback – for every teacher and student.
Writing proficiency remains an elusive goal in education, with only 27% of students testing ‘proficient’. Yet writing is cited as one of the most important 21st-century skills for the workplace and helps to increase reading comprehension and content knowledge.
Becoming a successful writer is crucial to a student’s overall engagement and success in school, work, and life. To grow as writers, students need instructional scaffolding and targeted feedback, encouraging them to write and revise with intention. At Writable, our vision is to make writing easier for teachers and more motivating for a new generation of writers – writers with purpose. We hope you’ll join us.
When students write with purpose they work with a goal in mind. They write for an authentic audience. They are motivated by and interested in their topic. They learn by reviewing others’ work and revising their own. And they recognize that writing has a structure and is a process.
We are a group of educators and technologists with a vision to close the writing proficiency gap by making practice easier for both students and teachers. With over nine years working together to build ELA tools like Subtext and Accelerated Reader, we’re now working with schools to inspire more purposeful, effective writing in K12 classrooms.
