Nobody Writes Like Me ($50 for students) is a highly customizable Freshman Composition webtext designed to challenge students to approach writing in a new way. Traditional readings are permissioned to match your syllabus and overlayed with thought-provoking multimedia content inside our learning environment, which has been structured to align and centralize disparate learning resources.
Soomo original videos explore professions not traditionally considered writing intensive and position their work in the context of effective written communication. Examples include a police officer explaining the importance of detailed, accurate written reporting as a critical component of the justice system; an architect detailing how his work’s success depends on his ability to thoroughly explain his concepts; and a chef on the role of writing in the restaurant industry. All videos are paired with thought-provoking questions designed to support the steps of Bloom’s Taxonomy.
Readings are permissioned based on individual syllabi and built right into the Soomo learning environment. Our off-the-shelf webtext includes a catalog of commonly used resources with embedded assignments that can be reordered to match your schedule. Each reading in our collection is paired with thought-provoking questions and paper topics. Students are challenged to evaluate material in new ways and explore conflicting perspectives. Integrating your school’s readings into our platform is a snap.
Students can access the webtext’s rhetoric from every page in our platform. The rhetoric is an expansive resource that can be tailored to your school’s writing emphases. It covers basic topics such as argument, audience, and tone; as well as complexities including logical fallacies and the rhetorical triangle.
