Begin to Spark Student Writing with Ideas
A distinct feature of Write About is that it is not only a writing platform, but one with several thousand writing prompts! Ideas, on the site, are defined as "visual writing starters created by teachers. They can elicit specific responses or be open-ended." Students can then use one of those ideas that are already provided, or they can use one generated by their teacher. These are the starting points of each individual piece of writing, which is known as a Post.

Community Writing Groups
The purpose is to help students find inspiration and identity for their writing as well as to connect them with other student writers so they can read and comment. If a student is interested in sports, video games, or changing the world, there's a Community Writing Group for that. This is a fantastic collaborative feature that allows students to connect with other students with similar writing interests.
