On Your Own C is a very cool-looking survey application designed to solicit opinions and comments about issues like tobacco, addiction, dress, and other items of particular interest (to teens, I think) — a question about UFO’s is in there, too.
Once you register, you can write a comment, though it doesn’t appear that you can get a url address specific to what you wrote. Even with that limitation, it would clearly be a high-interest site for students to use. They could always write their comments elsewhere (a blog or hard copy) and just copy and past on to “On Your Own C.”
It’s very accessible to English Language Learners and I’m adding it to The Best Places Where Students Can Write For An “Authentic Audience”.
Thanks to 10,000 Words for the tip.
