Writable is designed to not only support virtual, hybrid, and in-person instruction, but also the transition between different learning environments. Prior to the pandemic we already were the platform of choice for many virtual schools. We are deeply committed to supporting educators and students who are new teaching and learning in hybrid or virtual classrooms.
Writable is a research-backed digital writing program that not only provides 600+ customizable assignments, but guides the writing, feedback, and revision process. By using Writable you can increase both student agency and metacognition during the writing process in the classroom or at home.
Teacher accounts are always free, and students get to try Writable for 2 months on us.
When the turn towards virtual learning started Team Writable made it their primary mission to build new features, curriculum, and resources to best support the new needs of educators and their students.
Whether you’re teaching live or asynchronously, Writable helps you organize instruction, find and create curriculum, communicate with students, facilitate small and whole group lessons, guide feedback, and track writing growth.
If you’re teaching in-person but practicing social distancing, Writable can be a great support in facilitating authentic student-to-student communication with the use of guided anonymous peer review cycles.
Some of our newest features and supports that will help you engage and support your students during this time include:
I was able to use this program, and I'm a tech dinosaur. It was heaven sent during distance learning!Carmen C., 5th Grade Teacher
Inspiring and engaging students to write can be a challenge, and we know it’s especially difficult this year. We also know efficiency is critical. Writable’s assignments can be used right now with your students.
Our curriculum team gathered this collection of skills practice and response to reading assignments that are perfect for providing your students with a more guided and scaffolded experience.

We recognize it’s important to support students in moving towards the same learning goals and standards. These assignments provide consistency for students regardless of where students are learning and the assessments that are being administered.

"When distance learning began, Writable released features allowing for teachers to record lessons and provide video/audio feedback to students. This allowed for deeper communication, connection, and increased accessibility. It's just another iteration in a long line of extremely user-friendly, teacher, and student-centric tools that Writable has incorporated into their platform, demonstrating once again that they lead the way in writing tools in the digital age."Evan G., Assistant Principal
We welcome all to join us as we learn together on this journey. We’re here to support you in our Live Chat inside Writable or through the communities below.
My hope is that we can use this specific conversation about school closures as a means to have broader conversations about what it means to teach and learn in a digital, interconnected world. We owe it to our students to do this work well and I have no doubt we can do this.Dr. Troy Hicks
