How I Use It
I use GrammarBytes to review grammatical concepts I have already heavily covered in class. We watch the short videos provided by the website in class as a whole group and then discuss concepts/ask questions. The videos are a bit repetitive, but they reinforce concepts nicely.
My Take
The website's videos are a bit repetitive, but they do reinforce concepts students may have explored previously. Not sure I would use this to introduce or solely teach concepts for middle school students, as I feel students may need a bit more instruction, but it may be a good tool for high school-aged students. I do like the fact that I can guide students to complete practice exercises on their own and I enjoy the plethora of free review tools, downloadable worksheets, PowerPoint presentations and videos. Overall it is a good tool for review and the introduction of grammar units, but teachers would likely supplement it with some of their own instructional materials too.
