COW is a software program with creative writing prompts to help students overcome their fear of the blank page. Each student has an avatar, and an audience throughout the rest of the classroom. Upon publishing a piece of writing, other students can endorse articles with a smile. Teachers can use writing challenges provided by COW, or create their own. Unlike the harshly judgmental Pearson Essay Scorer, which literally killed my daughter’s writing confidence in 6th grade, COW works like a helper and a partner. This solution hit close to home. Writing is thinking, and part of our spirit. Writing tools should encourage this spirit and help us prosper. COW’s tone feels right on track.
