Engaging reluctant writers using e learning tools (SlideShare)

Hi everyone, I stumbled upon a great slideshare that I wanted to bring to your attention. It has some fantastic ideas and links to some great online tools to engage your students. It’s geared to junior or “reluctant” writers and offers unique ways of aligning curriculum with Internet based tools. See for yourself by clicking here. I particularly likedĀ The Hero Factory on page 10.


PicLits – an idea for reluctant writers is a creative writing site that matches beautiful images with carefully selected keywords in order to inspire and engage writers. The object is to put the right words in the right place and the right order to capture the essence, story, and meaning of the picture. Click here to try it.
