"I just learned about this fantastic site from fellow edublogger @dkapuler, thanks David! Boom Writer is a fun site that gives you a new way to engage your students in creative writing, and will have them assessing themselves in a new way. Using Boom Writer, you (the teacher) choose or produce your own story starter. Each student follows this prompt letting their imagination take over. One chapter at a time, student write, read and vote on the submissions they like the most. The winning chapter gets added to the story and the process continues. You can determine how many chapters will be completed. When the collaborative story is finished, the book can be read online or published and turned into a published print copy."
