Captivators can be added to your eWritesteps account to show the whole class!

Captivators™ are the daily instructional videos for 3rd-5th grade students that are also offered in CaptivationStation. Captivators can be added to an existing eWriteSteps subscription. The videos are sold separately as an alternate solution to CaptivationStation when classrooms are not equipped with enough devices to support the daily online writing and grammar practice with students.

Captivators were created by the 2015 Michigan Technology Teacher of the Year, Joanna Van Raden. After hearing about the remarkable success Joanna had with her students when she created her own writing and grammar videos to blend her classroom, WriteSteps contacted Joanna to create Captivators. The result is truly amazing!

Captivators are short 5-7 minute instructional videos that cover every 3rd -5th grade lesson plan in eWriteSteps. Captivators significantly shorten instructional time so students can spend more time writing and teachers can spend more time with personalized conferencing. Captivators also enable greater fidelity of writing and grammar instruction across the school.
