Tablet Tutor Runs on All Internet-Connected Devices (except smartphones).
Writer’s Studio 1 is one of the schools in a planned series of 20 to 30 Tablet Tutors. Tablet Tutor is streaming, interactive courseware designed specifically for the purpose of providing meaningful middle school language arts content that will run on virtually any internet-connected device except for smartphones.
Steps in the Process of Writing is the focus of instruction for this school, and it is presented in the form of a 3D-style, page-turning book and an interactive timeline.
Upon completion of instruction, students will be able to…
• recall and sequence the five steps in the writing process.
• discuss activities to take during each of the steps.
• recognize the importance of identifying purpose and audience.
• list at least 3 methods for writing an intriguing lead.
• recognize the importance of revising and proofreading.
• demonstrate mastery by successfully completing an online evaluation.
Online practice and evaluation activities include 2 levels of Stick Stack (drag and drop into correct sequence) and 1 Scholar Board (a 10-question, multiple-choice quiz). All interactive review activities and quizzes yield recordable scores, and those scores may also be printed. Additionally, students are given the opportunity to compare their answers with the correct choices.
Writer’s Studio 1 includes Your Local Library, a glossary of terms and definitions that students may access for reference at any time while using this app.
Tablet Tutor: Writer’s Studio 1, will run on PC’s, Macs, Laptops, MacBooks, Chromebooks, iPads, and Android Tablets. It is not, however, compatible with smartphones.
