How I Use It
This product was used as a form of grammar practice for students. Once students registered with quill and added my class I assigned them various grammar activities the site provided as options. As long as you have an electronic device for each student this is a great way to practice grammar other than just paper and pencil worksheets. This provides a varied of activities grouped into specific skills. I liked that while students were completing the activities they received immediate feedback. This helped remedy many common grammar mistakes frequently made by students. I have also used the writing portion of this product. I did not like the writing portion. It basically provided student with a writing topic and allowed two students to write back and forth to each other using that same topic. I was not able to monitor what the students were writing as they wrote, and also some of the topic were added by other students and not necessarily appropriate or monitored by an educator.
My Take
I think this is a great tool if you are using it as a form of grammar practice. The instant feedback is valuable to students. It also provides the instructor with feedback on individual students including areas of strengths and weaknesses. The variety of activities one can assign to students is beneficial.
