This interactive workshop will explore and provide hands-on examples of how the use of a new online program, based on six trait analytic rubrics, can be easily integrated to improve student outcomes and to encourage and motivate students to revise. Enriching the discussion will be methods currently in use in a middle school classroom to efficiently and effectively integrate an online writing practice program into core instruction providing instant scoring of student work, targeted feedback, suggestions for revision, kid friendly tutorials on each trait, exemplars and tools that allow teachers and students to communicate easily about their work. An online math practice program will also be discussed. Both can also serve as common formative assessments that are characteristic of PLCs.
