Throw Away Your Writing Roadmap Materials: It's Gone!

Leigh Ann Hood Reports from the WV State Technology Conference:

WV Writes replaces Writing Roadmap.  Training on the new site will be forthcoming.  The site has 
34 passages from 2008 Westest 2 Online Writing and 196 grade-level shelf prompts
Like Acuity it is aligned to the CSO's.  It is also customized to the WV Writing Rubric.
There are different URL's for teachers and students, but the students entry info
will remain the same.  Throw away everything to do with Writing Roadmap because
it is gone.

The presenters of the workshop stressed that students should not be given grades on their WV Writes entries.  For example, an assessment result of 4 in WV Writes should not be converted into a daily grade for writing.
