Writing Resources for Differentiated Instruction

Today's blog entry is all about free online writing resources for the Differentiated Instruction Classroom. These tools are FREE and are part of the Read/Write Web where content is created online. Please let me know what you think about the resources.

1. WritingFix: Where getting a daily "fix" of writing is more important than fixing your writing. Write EVERY day!

WritingFix, we believe, is the only site of its kind. It was designed by writers, teachers, and spark the imaginations of writers, teachers and students...of all ages.

Three ways to use Writing Fix if you are a Teacher

2. Read/Write/Think - spend hours on this site that supports literacy learning for K-12 but especially notice the "Student Materials Link." When you click on this, you will see a list of resources. Each activity has its own interactive tool. Very Cool!

3. Two Online Word Processor Programs - Do you assign group projects to your students? Do you have students begin the writing process at school and complete it at home or over several days? Do your students sometimes lose track of their completed assignments? Then these sites are worth exploring and sharing with your students!
Writely - a simple, secure document collaboration and publishing tool in beta from Google. (anything from google is worth exploring! You will need to register- takes two seconds)
