From your LaunchPad Solo home page, you can scroll down the contents and see that the resources are organized in the same broad topic areas as the handbook's table of contents.
What resources are available for my students?
Expanding any main title in the contents, you will see resources related to a specific topic, grouped by type of resource. The types of resources are Exercises, Writing practice, LearningCurve, and Sample student writing. These resources provide new ways to get the most out of your course, and they complement Rules for Writers.
Nearly 260 exercises cover writing, grammar, and research topics—all of which provide feedback and most of which are autoscored. These offer students a chance to practice skills correlated with handbook instruction.
Writing Practice Activities
The 36 writing prompts encourage students to apply the lessons of the handbook to their own writing.
LearningCurve is an online, adaptive, self-quizzing program that quickly identifies what students already know and helps them practice what they don’t yet understand. LaunchPad Solo for Rules for Writers features 30 LearningCurve activities in a range of reading, grammar, and documentation topics.
Sample Student Writing
LaunchPad Solo for Rules for Writers contains more than 40 models of student writing in a variety of genres and disciplines. Also included are two student multimodal projects and multiple samples of MLA and APA formatting. Model student writing includes analysis, research, literature reviews, literary analysis, and more in MLA and APA styles. (Students have immediate access to a selection of these models in the LaunchPad Solo contents; other models can be assigned by the instructor.) Each model demonstrates effective writing and proper documentation, including updated MLA 2016 guidelines.
