- Students aren’t always going to have time or access to a peer to edit their work, depending on what field there in, and the knowledge their peers may have about the topic they’re writing about. With this in mind, I believe students need to be able to hear how their writing sounds, in order to be able to make effective choices in editing their own work. By recording themselves reading aloud their writing, they can practice how they may present it in a real life context- and save the file to edit the next day. This gives the writing a time to rest, and the perfect amount of time a writer may need to take a break from what they’ve written so they can come back to it- in a new refreshed way. Using the recording they can listen to the life they bring to their writing, as they emphasize the meanings they’re intended to convery- and keep track of them in the editing process so they don’t accidentally loose the meaning they want to present while removing words or phrases – in order to fit a word count or time limit. They can use this free website, again and again, to reflect on their own stylistic uses of word choice, transitional phrases, descriptive language…etc to improve their writing on their own, on their own time, to grow and become the most effective writers they can be.
