Sunburst Technology announced a new web-based writing program for students in grades 2-8, called Write Brain. Co-developed by Sunburst DigitalXperts, an online learning development company, the program is accessible online 24 hours a day. Students use it to build writing skills through a research-based process of text production that includes word processing, writing strategies, self-evaluation, peer and teacher assessments, and collaborative writing. The program enables teachers to intensify their writing instruction with limited classroom time, providing critical preparations for high-stakes writing tests. Write Brain features more than 150 educational writing prompts covering 11 genres of writing and was developed with educator input. Teachers can select from prepared lessons, create their own lessons and writing prompts, or edit existing lessons from their school, district, or the online Write Brain community. Those newly created lessons then can be aligned or edited to meet state standards.
