The Writer's Guide

The Writer's Guide is a highly customizable rhetorical reader with a handbook designed for use in first-year composition courses. The webtext contains a mix of reading selections, Soomo-original videos, and guided instructions for MLA or APA citation styles. Thesis and outline builders use guided prompts to assist students in formulating strong thesis statements and well-organized outlines that increase the quality of assigned essays.

Resources for your team and students

Adopting and rolling out a webtext is easy. To ensure that getting started is as smooth as possible, Soomo provides screencasts and documentation for students, instructors, and administrators. These documents are typically customized specifically for your school.

Course Setup

If you’re using an LMS, such as Blackboard, we’ll create a customized screencast to explain the process of linking the shell to the resource for your instructors and administrators.

Overview for Students

The first time a student logs in to the webtext they will see a Student Guide video. This feature-based walk-through points out elements designed to help students succeed.
