Paragraph Punch

Logo for Paragraph Punch
An online activity that guides students through writing a very simple paragraph, from topic sentence development to revision. Built for a basic-level course -- developmental writing or, more likely, elementary school/middle school. This is built around previewing softwre that assists students with composing paragraphs. I can't tell from the free preview whether the software is a positive influence or not.

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.
