8-A-1 Web Applications- Google Docs

As a previous writing teacher, I have felt the students’ pain when working through the writing process. For many students, writing does not come naturally and it is difficult for them to work independently through the writing process. With a class of at least 25, it is very difficult for one teacher to meet with all of the students on a daily basis to give feedback and guidance. For any student, I would recommend Google Docs. Google Docs allow the teacher to give immediate and continuous feedback to the student during all the stages of the writing process. Students and teachers can send chat messages to discuss the direction of the writing project. It will ensure that students are all on track and meeting the requirements of the assignment. The amount of support that teachers can offer their students through Google Docs is valuable.
