Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Write About


Write About provides a site where students can further explore the craft of writing and do some of their own writing as well.

What We Like: 
  • Teachers can create “ideas” or a visual starter/bellringer for students to write about
  • Student writing becomes a post that teachers can access
  • Student writing can be private or public
  • Create groups for student peer editing process
  • Search other teacher’s plans for lesson plan ideas/starters
  • Teachers can monitor students’ writing throughout the writing process
  • Can only have 40 students on the free account
  • Creates a separate area to receive workflow (outside of Google Docs or another LMS)
Classroom Application: 
Create a space for students to do 'bellringer' writing with visual prompts
