I know the title of the “The Best…” list is both awkward and a mouthful (and it’s not even entirely accurate). Let me explain…

During the first part of the school year, we focus on writing Problem/Solution and Persuasive essays in our Intermediate English classes. Then we do one on Response To Literature. I already developed The Best Resources For Learning How To Write Response To Literature Essays, which contains a lot of good interactive exercises for that genre.  In a moment, I’ll share all my Best lists related to writing.   But even though I have quite a few, I really didn’t have one that would be particularly helpful to our upcoming Problem/Solution essay.  And when I began trying to find them, I discovered that all the good ones I found were not specifically about Problem/Solution, but instead where about various kinds of related-writing.

So, for lack of a better title, I came up with The Best Online Interactive Exercises For Writing That Are Not Related To Literary Analysis.  I’m all ears if anybody can come up with a better one.

Before I share my choices for this list, here are links to all my other writing-related ones:
