New Evan-Moor program helps motivate students to write

At FETC, Evan-Moor introduced a new software program called “Take It to the Computer: Writing Sentences and Paragraphs,” designed to help motivate students to write. With separate, grade-specific offerings for students in grades 1-5, the software uses interactive computer activities and print support materials as tools for building basic writing skills. The program leads students through each stage of the writing process, from prewriting to publishing, and gives students the opportunity to publish their completed work and share it with parents and others via a colorful printed page, an electronic slideshow, or a built-in eMail function. Each grade-specific edition retails for $399 for a classroom version or $599 for a lab version, with volume discounts available.
