Writing Software -- The Big Picture

Do you know someone who is smart, but a poor writer? Do you have a child or student that has difficulty sitting down and writing a well-organized paper? Or do you have a child learning cursive handwriting? A number of programs on the market claim to help students become better writers. SuperKids took a look at some of them, and came away believing that this topic offers potential.

  • Inspiration Software, Education Edition [ages 9 and up] from Inspiration Software, helps students develop ideas and organize their thinking using webs, outlines and diagrams. Best for older students and adults who want to improve their writing.
  • Secret Writer's Society [ages 7 to 9] from Panasonic Interactive, teaches the basics, like topic sentences and punctuation. Now that a bug in an early version has been corrected, the program effectively teaches the skills needed for good writing.
  • The Write Connections [ages 2 to 8] from Children's Choice, focuses on teaching kids the principles of handwriting. This program presents letters, numbers and more in a multimedia, multi-sensory manner, and gives kids plenty of opportunity to practice what they've observed.
  • Kaplan: Writing and Vocabulary Essential Review [ages 14 to 18] from Encore Software, helps high-school students to improve their composition, English and standardized test skills. This program is best for motivated students who are willing to read a computer screen for several hours and can independently apply large amounts of abstract information to specific assignments.
