MyLab Writing for Developmental English Tour Video Transcript
Hi. I’m here to talk to you about some of the exciting features you’ll find in MyLab Writing for Developmental English. Created for developmental writing courses, MyLab Writing for Developmental English prepares students for English Composition and beyond through personalized instruction.
Today we’ll look at Personalized and Adaptive Learning; interactive Learning Tools; and improving student writing through instructor-led writing assignments.
More and more students enter composition courses with widely varying skills. It can be a challenge for instructors to identify which students lack the skills for composition-level topics and need extra support early in the term.
In MyLab Writing, a pre-assessment called the Path Builder provides an early indicator of which students may need to review the prerequisite topics for the course.
Personalized and adaptive instruction is delivered in a scaffolded structure through the Learning Path, which supports learning in a variety of styles.
Generate class discussion, guide lectures, and promote peer-to-peer learning with Learning Catalytics. Newly integrated into MyLab Writing, this interactive student response tool uses students’ smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage them in more sophisticated tasks and thinking.
Also new to MyLab Writing, MediaShare enables students to post multimodal assignments easily for peer review and instructor feedback. In both face-to-face and online course settings, MediaShare saves instructors time and enriches students’ experience; contextual feedback is provided quickly and easily.
MyLab Writing combines instructor comments and feedback with targeted remediation through rich multimedia activities. Students learn from and through their own writing.
Instructors can add links to activities that address issues and strategies needed for review.
Instructors can also link to multimedia resources in Pearson Writer, which include curated content from Purdue OWL.
In the Writing Assignments, students can use instructor-created peer review rubrics to evaluate and comment on other students’ writing.
