3 Ways to Improve Student Writing

Educational Consultant Ali Parrish gives advice on how to improve your students’ writing: get them talking! She suggests telling a student that you’ll write as he/she speaks to get the paper started. You can also ask students to audio record them speaking their essays rather than writing them. Lastly, Parrish suggests students use an app or speech-to-text tool on a smartphone that allows students to speak their essays, then email themselves that first draft. Students may just be more inclined to finish those papers!
