Create Your Project

First up, create your project. Imagine you’re teaching a unit on Ancient Rome with the primary learning objectives consisting of Geography, Culture, Government, and Religion. Simply create a section for each of these areas of focus. The project will go one section at a time in the order you’ve set.

Start with as many sections as you think you’ll need, or start with just one and add more as you go along. ProjectWriter allows you control at all times.

Start Section 1

Enter assignment instructions for your students. For example, ask them to write a summary of a unit’s particular area of focus including particular vocabulary words or terms to be included in the piece. Include a max word count to give them an idea of how much they should write.

When you’re ready, start the writing phase and set a deadline for students to complete their entries by.

Let Your Students Write

Each student writes their entry for the section and submits it to you for approval. As students submit their finished pieces, you can review and approve or request revisions if needed. You’ll also be able to give individualized feedback on each student’s entry.

Tip: You can extend the deadline or end the writing phase at anytime.

Peer Sharing & Review

Students then peer review their classmates’ anonymous entries before voting for the piece they think is best. Students review no more than four submissions at a time, and they can vote more than once. The bottom line: our algorithm provides a fair, scalable, and easily managed voting method.

Tip: At the end of each section - conduct a class review of the winning entry.

Repeat Until Complete!

Simply repeat this process for the remaining sections, adding more as needed. At the end, you’ll have a unit-specific textbook written by your class!

See, we said it was easy!
