Welcome to The PEG Board! The PEG Board is your place to find regularly updated information on PEG Writing, writing instruction, and more! Have an idea for a topic that you'd like us to cover? Email us at email@example.com.
The holidays have arrived! Hannukah begins today; Christmas is in 9 days; Kwanzaa begins the day after. With all of these and more, perhaps you are still looking for that perfect gift for someone. Why not try writing?
Some of PEG Writing's prepackaged prompts are accompanied by stimulus material, including videos, web links, additional reading passages, and more. When a teacher creates a prompt in PEG Writing, they can also add stimulus material to these custom prompts. So where do you go for stimulus material? We've got some resources for you.
Creating engaging prompts and writing topics for students can be exciting, especially when you can see the wheels start to turn as they formulate a response. But sometimes you can get writer's block even when trying to create your prompts! Use this week's resources to spark some of your prompt development.
One of the questions we often get from teachers is why we choose to add YouTube videos to our stimulus material for some of the PEG Writing prepackaged prompts. Some teachers have told us that their districts block YouTube. Others worry that YouTube videos are not credible or that there may be inappropriate advertising prior to the start of the video. While we understand some of these concerns, we’d like to address some of the advantages of YouTube and share with you why we utilize this channel for our stimulus material.
Searching through the app store can be a time-consuming and overwhelming process. Let us help! This week's Resource Roundup includes just a few apps that can be used for writing, idea development, and organization.
