For students who LOVE to write, there are few things more exciting than a blank page. They don’t see white space; they see opportunity, and they can’t wait to get started. For many students, however, the opposite is true; just the sight of all that white, empty space fills them with dread.

For them, the blank page is a vast wasteland stretching for miles and miles; they have to fill it, and they don’t have a clue how to begin. Enter the writing prompt! Writing prompts are an excellent way to create a safe environment that encourages all students, even the most reluctant writers, to express their thoughts without reservation. Students can step out of their personal comfort zones and focus on what they want to say, instead of how they’re saying it. Writing prompts can also be effective in helping students break through writer’s block, providing a space to record free-flowing thought they can always revisit and organize at a later time if they choose.

Hooray! Scholar is an online platform that supports students throughout the writing process. It comprises a Google Chrome annotation tool, a digital notebook and outline, and leverages EasyBib’s power to create accurate source lists and bibliographies.

We also have a snazzy Google Docs Add-on that we announced at ISTE 2015, which we are pumped about. We’ve compiled a quick presentation to explain seven ways Scholar supports students with writing (yay, alliteration!).
