MY Access! From Vantage Learning
How do you incorporate writing into your teaching strategy?
As you evaluate different writing curricula, there are three questions you should ask yourself:
- Will this program help my child improve his or her writing?
- Can I use it with the rest of my curriculum?
- Can I play an active a role without being a strong writer myself?
A program that has been rapidly gaining in popularity, and answers YES to all three questions, is MY Access!® Home Edition from Vantage Learning. MY Access!® is completely Web based, so there's no software to load, and it's accessible anywhere you have a computer and Internet connection—at home, at school, or at the library.
Will this program help my child improve his or her writing?
Yes. MY Access!® guides students through the process of writing to ensure that they become confident evaluators of their own writing. With instructional opportunities available in various formats at any time, students remain motivated as they can explore a topic when they are most open to learning.
Can I use it with the rest of my curriculum?
Yes. Parents will find that MY Access!® is easily integrated into any curriculum and enables them to support and track their students along the way. The ability to easily enter your own writing topics on any subject makes MY Access!® an integral part of your complete curriculum.
Can I play an active a role without being a strong writer myself?
Yes. Essay scoring and individualized feedback is available to both students and parents immediately through an award-winning artificial intelligence scoring engine. Detailed, prescriptive revision plans are provided to focus students' revision activities on the key traits of writing: focus, content development, organization, language use, and grammar. Through a separate login, parents have the ability to review their students' work and the feedback provided, as well as assign available writing topics or design additional topics. Additional resources within the application, as well as a monthly newsletter and community Web site, offer practical tips, strategies, and ideas to help you in your teaching efforts.
