- Project Essay Grade (PEG) Wins First Prize in National Competition
- PEG Writing Selected for Classroom Trials Study
What our students are saying...
I liked PEG Writing because you could send comments and questions to your teacher for help. - 5th grade student
With PEG writing, you are also able to put in your own writing prompts. How great would it be to be able to be a Science teacher and put in a writing prompt that required students to use Language Arts, or a History teacher that puts in a writing prompt that included a Math word problem! It would be a great resource for teachers to really bridge the necessary gap of being cross-curricular.
It is an individualized teaching tool, too! Once a piece of writing is submitted and scored by the computer, not only does it tell the student their score in each writing trait, it also provides them with video lessons they can watch on their own that target the writing traits they need to improve in. This function also works as a class lesson in that the teacher is able to go in and choose a lesson she wants to focus on, say "word choice", find a video lesson and teach it whole class or small group as needed.
I would be incredibly grateful if Marion City Schools brought this program to our teachers! GREAT investment in our future and our school mission of "Inspiring a community of achievers!" - 6th grade ELA teacher
"I was so thrilled to have had the chance to try out the PEG Writing program...and my students not only enjoyed it, but many of them showed drastic improvement. It definitely challenged them to continually work toward improving their skills." - 5th grade teacher
