BoomWriter motivates students to think, read, create, compare, evaluate and innovate.
Since students want their chapters to earn votes, they push their creative skills to the next level!
Because what they have written will face an audience of peers rather than simply their teacher, students’ creativity flourishes, and they come to realize the importance of composition, syntax, spelling and even grammar!
To top this off, BoomWriter features an appealing customizable cartoon avatar for each student to display his or her personality while writing anonymously. The peer evaluations of each of the chapters are therefore free of the influence of personalities, cliques, or collusion.
BoomWriter is extremely safe for students. The site is password protected for teachers and students, and only the teacher is able to have direct communication with the students (for the purpose of instruction). Students’ individual identities are protected by the avatar that they create, and this allows them to have a persona without compromising their identity. All student chapter submissions are screened by the teacher before being submitted for the peer voting process.
Rather than frittering away hours on Facebook and YouTube on activities that do not build brain power, a student who spends time participating in BoomWriter competitions is dramatically boosting his or her valuable cognitive skills.
The highest levels of thinking and learning, as quantified by Bloom’s Taxonomy of Cognition, are “Creating” and “Evaluating.” BoomWriter guides students to do both... while having fun in the process! The educational benefits of BoomWriter are seemingly endless.
BoomWriter can serve as an incredibly helpful tool for any balanced literacy program in school, and teachers already using the program instantly recognize the heightened levels of investment and engagement demonstrated by their students.
Using BoomWriter Writing Club outside of school, students are essentially doubling or tripling their time spent practicing reading, writing, and evaluating skills, thus placing them at a higher academic achievement level both inside and outside of school.
