Description

The Digital Writing Challenge includes 20 Google compatible activities that allow students to explore a variety of writing types while improving their writing skills along the way.

This is a Google resource and students complete all the work on the computer. This works well with distance learning, 1:1 classrooms, remote teaching, Google Classroom, or online education.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Teachers open up the included “Writing Challenge” webpage board that includes 20 hidden activity prompts. The teacher clicks on the appropriate challenge number to reveal the hidden prompt. Then, they share the link for that challenge for students to complete on their device. These challenges are best used weekly or bi-weekly in a classroom setting, but if you are teaching online, they can work as daily activities as well.. Some activities may take 15 minutes, some may take half a class, while others my even take a full class or two (depending on how much you want students to write)!
