This is a nifty, interactive writing site created by two Montana high school teachers to allow students to work on individual writing difficulties. It gives examples of excellent, acceptable, and unacceptable writing and tells WHY the writing works or doesn't. It explains each area of writing: from content to sentence fluency to voice and conventions and offers rubrics for scoring, as well. You do have to sign up for this feature (see "user accounts" link), but it is free, and creating an account allows you to work with an entire class at a time. There are some Amazon ads for writing-related books on this site.

In the Classroom

The idea of entering an entire class as an account really encourages individual writing assistance for students in individual areas. This works for talented writers as well as those who are struggling. It also allows one teacher to assist an entire class by giving individual time and support while the rest of the class continues working on his/her own areas. Couple this work with a classroom blog or wiki for student publishing.
