'Co-created by a teacher and the CEO of a technology company, this is a free, easy-to-use group writing website that challenges students to produce their best work—and makes them published authors at the end of the process.
Here’s how it works: Teachers choose or produce the beginning to a story, then challenge students to continue writing the story. Each student submits the next chapter, and then they vote on which entry is the best. (Students can’t vote for their own submission, and they don’t know whose chapter they’re voting for.) The winning chapter is then added to the story, and the process continues.
Students earn BoomDollars for voting and for having their entries chosen, and they can use this currency to buy accessories for their site avatar. The teacher determines the total number of chapters to be completed, and when the story is finished, it’s published as a book that students and their families can own.
Students are captivated by this unique approach to writing, and it’s extremely easy for teachers to incorporate into their curriculum.'
