How I Use It
Our middle school English department uses No Red Ink to teach grammar items that require student to manipulate the sentences due to the technology enhanced questions. Students score drops for wrong answers but points build up when additional questions are answered correctly. Lessons can be assigned based on student weakness to allow for differentiation. However, the Speak feature of Accessibility on the iPad will not read the items to students. Some of our struggling readers, struggle with No Red Ink because of this. No Red Ink requires students to be critical thinkers. They can't just guess an answer to a multiple choice item but rather have to problem solve to manipulate the sentence correctly.
My Take
Our English department has used this for the past two years. The first year, they used the free version. They like it so well that we now have the paid version. Students enjoy the competition of knowing who has the most lessons completed.
