Do you write like Edgar Allen Poe? How about William Shakespeare or even Sojourner Truth? Have you ever wanted to have your writing analyzed to determine who you compare with among the greats? Honestly, I do not write like any of them. However, according to “I Write Like“, I do write like Cory Doctorow. This site is a very simple one to use. All you have to do is type in a couple of paragraphs or even copy and paste in your blog post, poem, thesis, or a chapter from a book. Upon placing the writing within the text box, go to the bottom of the page and click on the “Analyze” button. Wait, “”Analyze”? Is this not part of Bloom’s Taxonomy and higher-order thinking? Anyhow, after the site determines which writer you reflect, a page will appear with a badge displaying the famous author (as displayed below). Then, by clicking on the badge displaying the author, it will take you to a different site providing you background information on that author.
Now I challenge all educators and students across the country to visit “I Write Like” and see which famous author your writing resembles.
