Engaging students in South Carolina

Arlene Enos is a 5th grade departmentalized teacher at Berea Elementary, which is a Title 1 school in Greenville, South Carolina. She has used Writable to improve writing growth and engage her students.

Arlene has been able to see both the quality and quantity of student writing improve throughout the course of the school year. She also finds that Writable is a great tool for prepping her students for their state assessment and for doing personal check ins with each of her students.

It is the best platform I have ever seen in the education system. It allows students to sharpen their skills, provides what to assign based on results of practice skills, and videos related to the topic/skill. Truly amazing. THANK YOU for making this happen is all I have to say!

Students can anonymously peer edit using the SAME rubric as the teacher. Students are super engaged in this process. Writable has the same look and feel as SBAC giving students time to learn the tech before having to take their test in the spring.

I loved how easy it was to put in the rubrics, and how it already had AP world history. Everything was easy to adapt. Writing was an initiative we were trying to take on, and Writable was so easily used by the entire school.

Writable is very user friendly and has a lot of great content. I also love how editable the program is!

Brian Forster


Public Schools of Petoskey

My writing instruction and teaching focuses on the growth of the writer, not necessarily a point in time assignment. With Writable, everything that students change based on my feedback is highligted in the different versions of their work.

Benjamin Wilson

High School ELA Teacher

I have been sending a lot of audio notes to my students in Writable and that has been very impactful.

Writable is exactly what I needed for my class and I wish I had discovered it earlier in the year. I love how it has prompts already made and passages for the students to incorporate into their writing. This is excellent practice for the end-of-year state testing.

Lindsey Aguirre


Clayton County Public Schools

There are many reasons as to why I like writable. I find that having students write with feedback provided to them is a great method for them to edit their work and make changes. Creating my own rubric has been a benefit as well. I can make sure all the points I want to be graded are in there and clear. I also like to assign analysis questions to the students. They can be assigned at their level. The differentiation in writable is amazing and helps students understand what is being asked of them.

Amanda Myers

Special Education Teacher

Jamestown Public Schools

Writable is such a vast resource, I almost don’t know where to begin. Besides content connected to the textbook, it provides automated scaffolding for students who need additional resources. I love that it also helps to ensure my students’ work is authentic by prompting them to check their own work. It’s a great resource for teachers.

Nathan Helland

High School ELA Teacher

North Bend School District

My 5th graders absolutely love Writable! It’s been a game changer in my class. Students are actively engaged and always look forward to “Writing Wednesdays with Writable”! Can’t say enough great things about this amazing program. #writingmatters


Even with the ability to track changes in a word processor and review rough drafts, our students’ writing processes have – until now – been largely invisible. Writable invites teachers to scaffold and participate in their students’ writing, response, and revision in ways we simply were unable to see before.

The ease of assigning work is great, plus there are lessons that are completely aligned with the texts the students are reading.

This was invaluable for my 10th grade English Resource class of students with special needs during NTI! They were able to navigate it with Google Classroom. I also was able to modify instruction for each student’s abilities using the tools provided. I look forward to creating more lesson plans with it next year!

Heidi Lynn Russel

Special Education Teacher

Fayette County Public Schools

I highly recommend Writable because it provides a variety of cross-curricular resources that teachers can easily use throughout the year. Also, the writing is approached in different ways, so all districts should be able to pick an approach that matches their district’s plan. Finally, it is very student friendly, from the ease of use to student interest topics.

Writable is an incredible tool – I particularly think that the rubric, peer editing, and GrammarAid are invaluable tools. Writable also provides incredible feedback. It it is extremely inspirational to see my students grow as they use Writable. I work with extremely hard to build lessons that incorporate the use of Writable in a powerful way.

Deborah Gilfillan

Writing Teacher

Glynn County School District

Exactly what I needed for my 4th graders. Writable allows me to quickly grade and give feedback on their writing. My students love the videos I send and really enjoy responding to my comments. The peer edits are so fun and motivating! In the 8 weeks I have used writable my students have had extreme growth!

Kristina Fey

4th Grade RLA Teacher

New Braunfels ISD

The quality of the writing selections is higher than what is usually available from our district. The STAAR prep was wonderful: The questions align perfectly with using more text evidence to support answers (even the multiple choice). The students found it easy to navigate, and it was easy for me to find what I needed and assign it. I like the automatic score feature where it gives a grading suggestion for the writing.

Leslie Green

Special Education Teacher

Birdville ISD

The students are able to see the rubric while they work, get feedback from peers easily, and self evaluate. Grading for the teacher is fast and effective.

Lisa Orlando

Writable is a very kid-friendly program for teaching writing. Everything that a teacher may forget to include in a writing lesson is already embedded in the program, including revision aid, rubrics, and originality checks. In addition, it also has peer review! It’s like having your very own teacher assistant!

Veronica Ligonde

6th Grade ELA Teacher

Burke County Public Schools

I have been teaching writing for 25 years and have looked for a program like this for years! It’s the perfect tool because it has all the features I want in a writing program: it is teacher and kid-friendly to use, it can be edited to suit your prompts, your rubrics, your specific directions, and it has accommodations for students with disabilities. I truly love this program and my students do too!

Fostering equity when choosing and implementing tech tools is more important than ever. Writable is one that ELA teachers are finding successful in providing equity. Self-revision, draft supports, and peer revision make it awesome! Be a change agent!

I like having the rubric right there with the student’s work. It is so much easier to give specific comments and tie them to the rubric with the highlighting.

Lynette Irvine

6th Grade Teacher

Franklin McKinley School District

Writable offers short writes, long writes, grammar lessons that focus on individual student needs, keeps student data to show growth, offers a variety of feedback (peer, teacher, share grader), rubrics that align to the educator’s state standards. Do I love this program? Yes, and do my students like it? Yes. Thank you for making this writing platform!

Crystal Kouns

Writable is easily differentiable and makes giving feedback simple for the teacher and straightforward for the student receiving it. I like being able to create my own Quick Writes and it is user-friendly on the student end.

Our Hernando 6th graders peer reviewed each other’s personal narratives with Writable. Shaping good readers AND writers one lesson at a time!


Our science teacher noticed my students’ persuasive writing skills after ONE WEEK with Writable. I’ve never seen growth so fast!

Cathy Montag


San Ramon Valley School District

Writable is a great resource for both teacher and students. I love the lay out and how each assignment builds in complexity from one assignment to the next. The combination of reading comprehension and writing along with revising and editing helps a great deal with getting students prepared for standardized testing.

Thank you Monica Burns for introducing me to Writable at just the right time to help my 3rd graders gain experience through scaffolded, guided practice of SBAC writing and more!


It’s amazing! It integrates with Classroom, Schoology, & Canvas. At 4th/5th- students love the anonymous peer feedback. Really helps them revise and make corrections much more than from just the teacher.


Writable is drastically and positively changing the way my students self review and peer edit their writing!
