What else is Writing Coach?

Writing Coach - Lets Go Digital


It’s Personalized

Writing Coach gives your students personalized, detailed feedback on the strengths and weaknesses of their writing. It is the only program that uses a paragraph scorer as well as an essay scorer so that your struggling students who aren’t ready to write larger pieces can receive the same productive feedback as the rest of the class.

It’s Flexible

Writing Coach only has a few components that work together as a comprehensive writing program or a seamless complement to any literature anthologies, novels, or other language arts program you might be using.

It’s Manageable

The best way for your students to become better writers is to spend more time writing. The problem is, the more time they spend writing, the more time you need to spend grading and assessing. Writing Coach does the time-consuming work for you by grading all of your students’ writing examples and providing personalized feedback. This lets you spend more time teaching and a whole lot less time grading.

It’s Engaging

Writing Coach provides targeted writing feedback in an online format that works for your digital natives. Plus, your students will receive extensive experience communicating in today’s digital world with skills instruction in writing e-mails and blogs, evaluating material on the Internet, and developing multimedia presentations.

It’s Comprehensive

Writing Coach is more than just a writing program. It’s a complete language arts program that provides personalized grammar instruction as well. Writing Coach uses your students’ writing examples to diagnose strengths and weaknesses in their grammar and supports them with grammar instruction and remediation.
