Interactive Writing Sites: The Collection

How often have you heard students say, "I can't think of anything to write"? The fact is, we can assign incredibly specific, prescriptive prompts, but what does that teach students about creativity?

This is where Interactive Writing Tools come in. As I teacher, I've found that these low tech, Internet-based writing tools inspire the most reluctant writers while enabling the most gifted writers to really stretch their imaginations. More importantly, these writing sites will help you to build students' critical thinking skills which are necessary for effective writing.

Every site featured here is student friendly, easy to navigate, and absolutely free! I've limited the suggestions to those I've personally used, but I absolutely welcome recommendations for others.
