Introducing GPT Thinking Partners

Create your own versions of ChatGPT to be your
Reading Buddy, Writing Coach, Research Assistant, or Learning Puppet.

NowComment's GPT Thinking Partners are GPTs (Generative Pre-trained Transformers)
designed to take you to new levels as a reader and a writer.

  • Write your own text of any genre or upload one from a Web Site, PDF or Word Doc.
  • Choose a sentence, paragraph, or the whole document. Click the button to Ask AI then select a GPT Thinking Partner. Pose a question and add a description of yourself if you would like, then wait for the results.
  • Critically read the output from OpenAI that comes to you in an edit box. You can also Resubmit and Resubmit to choose from alternative results. Edit the output of the results you choose so that it is helpful (for other users), honest (about the facts), and harmless (free of bias).
  • Hit Start conversation and see how a GPT comment is posted in context showing that this was written by a GPT Thinking Partner and edited by you. You and others can reply to any GPT-collaborated comments with human-only replies or with another GPT Thinking Partner.
  • Your work with OpenAI is free and anonymous on NowComment. No separate login is required and no identifying data is transmitted to OpenAI. The content you submit through NowComment is not being stored by OpenAI to train their models.


GPTs at your service

With the click of a button, you can deploy NowComment's Generative Pre-trained Transformers (GPTs) next to any document on NowComment. You can select from a bevy of brilliant GPTs.

We have designed these GPTs to be Thinking Partners who are always available to be your personal mentor, tutor, coach, teammate, student, simulator, or tool. GPT Thinking Partners don't just correct your writing or summarize a text; they help you to become a stronger writer and a more thoughtful reader.

NowComment's GPT Thinking Partners shape and transform the output you receive from the same Large Language Models that power ChatGPT. With NowComment's GPT Thinking Partners you make your own ChatGPTs to fit your specific needs as a reader and writer. You will be inspired by the control our GPT Thinking Partners give you over how to integrate AI into your own creative and thinking processes.

There are over 60 GPT Thinking Partners to choose from already (with more coming all the time)! And since there are so many, to guide your choice, we have organized them into the seven approaches for students that Dr. Ethan Mollick and Dr. Lilach Mollick describe in a recent paper, "Assigning AI," as briefly described in the next section, below.

We also invite you to make your own GPT Thinking Partners. NowComment is a platform where we learn with and about Artificial Intelligence.


Remix & Create
GPT Thinking Partners

Detail the persona of the best GPT Thinking Partner you can imagine having. Itemize for that character the reading strategies you want them to employ. Specify the output that you want to receive. Test and test until you have taught your GPT Thinking Partner how you want it to respond to the texts of any genre that you are reading or writing and uploading to NowComment. Become a prompt engineer.

Productivity Meter
AI as Tool: Extending Performance

We are learning together how to use GPTs as tools to extend our thinking. These GPT Thinking Partners can translate, adapt, and transform text. They can give you a prompt for creating an image and more. See Mollick & Mollick (2023) for more.

Keep your own
GPT Dialogue Notebook

Use NowComment to add daily logs on one document each week. Also add images and videos. Invite others to comment. Use GPT Thinking Partners beside your freewriting, jottings, exploratory logs. Upload a new document each week for you logs, then collect these weekly log documents and things you are reading into a Personal Collection. This collection becomes your GPT Dialogue Notebook.

But now, Janie finally found her voice, and once she did, death came for Joe. Not that its related to his death but the stress and anger of knowing that Janie’s voice was no longer under his control and was used against him is what further his death along.

Even with the ridicule she receives from Joe, if she messes up just a little, Janie continues to do everything while it seems that Joe is the one exercising the privileges of mayorhood by not doing anything.

This is all by designed by Joe since he wants to appear bigger than life to the otherwise small world of this town. By having Janie be decked out in obsessive riches, he is essentially showing off his most valued treasure. It fits the time period of how husbands would show of their wealth through their wives. If their wives were dressed in the most fashionable clothes and donned the most expensive jewelry, they were able to show off their power and wealth.

Talking about stores and post shops, they followed along. So in a way Joe is kinda appearing to take on the role of being a white savior with Janie helping establish this position due to her complexion and Joe keeping her looked away inside.

I think the porches represent either traditional gender roles or a form of freedom. Janie isn’t allowed on the porch, but she is allowed to look out upon them through the window you mentioned, Holden. The men are able to sit freely, discuss freely, and joke freely, while the women have to do all the work.

a trophy wife who he can parade around and tell what to do. Janie fit the bill of being desperate and naive enough to go with him not realizing the obvious red flags of his controlling nature. This could partly be from her never knowing a difference – Logan was controlling, and Nanny was too.

This has a lot of biblical language such as altars and gods. She treats Janie like a god because he “looks more white” than herself. I think that it just shows that Janie experiences racism in not only white people, but people of the same race as well. Nanny warned her about slavery and racism, but this is the first in person racism in the book

The fact that Tea Cake has the more control in the relationship. She isn’t coping with the fact that Tea Cake has all the control and she doesn’t. This makes her very insecure and very jealous of Nunkie. This shows that their relationship isn’t as strong as it looks like
