I composed a sample paragraph in this software and I liked it. There were a few things I had to know about using this software, but I was able to figure them out fairly quickly on my own. I like that the paragraphing is thorough--students must work through something like 10 different processes in order to complete a paragraph in this software. The downside to this resource is that it costs money to use. It would be wonderful if this product were made available for free use, especially if it provides a benefit to student writers.
