E Buddies from FSU Help Students with Writing

Last Updated on Oct 15, 2014 at 8:24am | Route 40 Elementary School


Route 40 fourth and fifth grades have partnered with Dr. Emily Millisen and her class to work on writing. The students have google doc accounts that are shared to permit the college students to provide feedback on our students' writing. On Monday morning, the buddies met face to face for a final revision of the piece. Everyone benefits from this program. Our students shared some comments on the process.

"I was happy because she ( ebuddy) said I did a good job on my writing and that I'm a good writer." - Caleb

"I learned from my ebuddy what a clause is, how to use commas correctly and what you can do to fix a run- on sentence." - Sara

"It helped me a lot with my writing to make it make sense. I like it because it is easier when you are one on one with someone." - Camden
