  1. Hello,
    My name is Tetyana, I’m a teacher. I want to write it with my 6th formers,what if they don’t have computers at home and can’t type.How can I send their letters to you?
    I thought I could take a picture and send.What are your suggestions?

    1. Thanks very much for your interest! I guess there are a few options if your students don’t have computers. 1: They could type in school, at a library, or somewhere else with internet access. 2: Someone else could type for them. 3: You could scan or take a picture of their writing.

      Honestly, any option that gets them typed is great. Scanning or sending pictures is probably not the best option, unless it’s the only option. Sometimes reading from pictures or scans can be difficult, and it might take a long time to figure out and type everything. It’s totally fine for the students to work with you, other teachers, or older students in preparing [revising, editing, typing] their pieces– it’s not a competition.

      Also, you might consider just choosing some of the most well-written pieces and typing up those few yourself. I realize teachers are busy everywhere, but typing up a few would take a lot less time than typing up all of them. It’s your choice.

      I hope these thoughts are helpful! Please let me know if you have any other questions.


  2. HelloMelissa,
    I also wanted to write very similar question-I am typing puplis’ works,should I type them on one list-mentioning their names?

    1. It’s a good question! Actually, it would be easier for me to receive each entry in a separate email, including names and required information at the top of each. Thanks very much for asking– and for typing! 🙂

    1. My rough guess for now is about 150! Some emails include multiple entries, so there’s still some sorting out to do, even to answer such a basic question. I’m working on it. 🙂
