If you’re looking for a way to encourage students to write about the problem of bullying, try this week’s latest Digital Write-Able from MakeBeliefsComix.com at http://www.makebeliefscomix.com/Digital-Write-Ables/
The Anti-Bullying Write-Able asks: Imagine that you could have a safe conversation with the schoolyard bully, about how their actions affect other peoples’ lives. What would you say to him or her?
The anti-bullying graphic prompt is part of a new MakeBeliefsComix writing prompt feature called Digital Write-Able which allows users to use their keyboard and write stories directly on the screen as they fill in the writing prompt. They then can print out their writings. The purpose of these interactive Write-Ables is to get youngsters writing and thinking in a quick and fun way. Their efforts to complete the Write-Able can then become the first step in writing longer essays or stories on the same subject.
We hope you’ll try it out with your students and give us feedback about this new feature. Our goal is to keep adding new Write-Ables on an ongoing basis. The next one will be about recounting our blessings for Thanksgiving.
