Students often find grammar boring because the content doesn’t relate to them. That’s why we generate questions from each student’s favorite celebrities, hobbies, TV shows, and friends. Imagine taking a quiz where your best friend’s name keeps popping up! It’s no surprise that students are engaged quickly.
We believe that “playing with language” is an essential part of learning to write. That’s why we have students drag in commas, click words to capitalize them, throw out unwanted punctuation, and edit parts of sentences directly whenever possible. We also design exercises that have multiple correct answers, as there’s more than one way to write a sentence.
We are adamant that teachers need the resources to help each student at the appropriate level – and that learners should be able to work at their own pace. Our site allows students to practice independently so that teachers can differentiate instruction based on results.
One benefit of technology is the ability to adjust questions based on what students get right or wrong, drilling down to their underlying misconceptions. When learners get stuck, we show them tutorials that help them correct their mistakes and keep going.
All educators know that it takes a long time for students to fully grasp new skills. Our site allows learners unlimited practice so that we can free up teachers’ time to focus on big-picture issues in students’ writing.
An amazing resource for the classroom! The students enjoy seeing questions that relate to their interests, and I have an effective, streamlined method of tracking progress.
I love this product… The ability for students to go back and fix their mistakes and have access to a tutorial is ideal.
I can not begin to explain how impressed I am. The site is easy to navigate. The students’ interests are piqued! The skills are specific. The results are easy to evaluate and help me to prepare for my lessons.
A POWERFUL, simple, brilliant way to quiz students on specific grammar skills. My students were incredibly receptive. NoRedInk gave them hints, and I saw significant growth!
I love using the Guided Drafts! It gives students guidance and also allows me to see which steps might be causing students the most confusion! It is especially beneficial for ELL and SPED students.
NoRedInk gives me specific data about what I need to focus on in class. I get to spend less time correcting grammar and more time focusing on content!
Quick Writes offer my students a low-risk, high-engagement atmosphere to express themselves. They were easy to assign, explain, and best of all...GRADE! I love using Quick Writes with my 8th graders and will continue to do them as often as possible.
My AP Lang students test drove this platform last year. Love it! As a teacher, I enjoyed being able to see exactly what my students were working on. The students especially liked personalizing the experience through their choices.
