Benchmark Education Company (BEC) introduced a fully-digital writing program for grades 2–8: Benchmark Writer’s Universe. Available now, Benchmark Writer’s Universe is a self-paced digital writing workshop that encourages students to work together and with their teacher to sharpen their writing skills and provide feedback with peers and their teacher in a collaborative environment.
The program spans grades 2-8 and covers six genres of writing projects and delivers instruction on six types of genre, including opinion, narrative, and informational text. Students answer writing prompts addressing opinion about a text, opinion about a topic, personal narrative, fiction, and informative/explanatory science and social studies texts. Teachers can create a writing prompt and assign the project to their students. With all writing done and submitted online, there are no printed materials to replace or manage. Benchmark Writer’s Universe is available in both English and Spanish languages.
Benchmark Writer’s Universe writing instruction program won a 2017 BESSIE Award for educational excellence.
