Updated this week

Students can work on multiple assignments at a time. To begin writing, students first need to log in to their accounts.

Our team is working to update our resources and videos following new program releases. We appreciate your patience!

Follow these steps to write and submit an assignment

  1. If accessing Writable through Canvas, Schoology, or Classroom, you will be taken directly to the assignment. Otherwise, click on the assignment to open it.

  2. The assignment dashboard will open up. Be sure to read the directions from your teacher. Then, click the 'Read & Write' tab.

  3. Now you will be able to view your prompt, rubric, and reading (if applicable). If your assignment includes a reading, click 'Check & Submit' on the right of the screen to expand the rubric. Click 'Back to Reading' on the left to expand the reading again.


    • You should always read the prompt fully and review the rubric before you begin writing. This will help make sure you meet the expectations set by your teacher!
