Have you ever needed someone to help you out with your writing? This site offers help to students and teachers. The lessons and resources are organized based on the 6 Writing Traits model. An especially interesting feature of the site is the "Interactive Instant Plot Creator" which allows users to cycle through a series of characters, settings and conflicts until they find a combination that sparks their imaginations and inspires the creation of a story. There are plenty of clearly categorized writing prompts, lesson instructions and printable handouts that should help teachers of all grade levels find successful ways to guide students to improved writing.
