Impact

Prompt library

Writing is a complex skill and a difficult one to master. Part of the challenge is creating well-written prompts that will inspire thought-provoking written responses from students.

Do you ever find yourself wishing you had more time to draft interesting writing prompts aligned to content and performance standards?

What about finding different types of media to supplement the writing prompt?

WRN helps teachers meet this challenge by providing a library of writing tasks that encourage students to think critically about a variety of subjects. The library already includes prompts for English Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science, catalogued by grade level. We will continue to add to the library with curated best-of-show prompts and supplementary materials.

Genuine feedback

Time is hard to come by, and with sometimes over 150 students to manage, it can be challenging to give well-thought-out, genuine feedback to each one.

We make it easier for teachers to provide detailed and constructive feedback on students’ work by storing an individually-tailored library of comments they can paste into their students’ drafts to help students understand how to strengthen their writing as they revise their response.

Devote a few minutes up-front to writing out explicit guidance on how to improve a transition between paragraphs or how to tell the difference between “their”, “there”, and “they’re” once, for example, and re-use that comment for multiple students’ papers throughout the year.

Every comment you write has the potential to be retained for future use. In this way, as your comment library grows, the time you spend writing comments gradually disappears!

And with practice comes improvement.

Streamlined grading

How do you normally spend your free time during school hours, after school, or during the weekend?

Grading papers, homework assignments, or tests?

WRN includes a variety of ways to speed up the grading process, including automatic grammar and mechanics checks, highlighting students’ use of words identified by the teacher as highly-relevant, and incorporation of flexible rubrics to help students understand areas for improvement. These efficiencies give teachers more time to help students who need more one on one support to succeed.
