Are You Teaching Academic Writing To English Students?
I'm always open for new ideas in this area. Recently, I've come across some really great resources to recommend to students who have online access. The topic for these resources are learning to write effectively and all are in the English language . . .
. . . Have you come across that you've felt were especially helpful or entertaining?
If so, please share them with us, instructors and students below in the comment box. Please follow the following format:
1. Give the "title" of the Site (if there isn't one, write your own)
2. give the full URL (web address) of the site, like so: http://www.english-blog.com
3. Give a short description (about a paragraph or so) of what this site is about, what it does and why you've found it useful or entertaining.
Thanks and happy writing!

Do you know Tim & Moby? Tim seems to be a youngish, college-aged male and Moby, well. . . he's a robot! But not just any old robot. This colorful segment, from the Brain-Pop folks, is an animated film-short that takes its audience through all the necessary steps for writing a decent, academic essay. Also on the page from BrainPop are advice from 'Gary and gary" on killing writer's block and an exercise with vocabulary from Bob, the "ex" lab rat. If nothing else, the piece has hilarious entertainment value. Check it out, it's not very long!
