Applications for Educators
Finding topics and methods to motivate students to write non-fiction essays is not easy. The Bleacher Report can provide students with topics they are interested in and an audience much wider than their classroom. When students have a public audience and a topic they’re interested in they are motivated to thoroughly edit their work, improve their writing, and generally have a sense of pride in their writing.
