How I Use It
I use it as extra practice. The students are driven to complete as many lessons as I give with a green. I use a point system and make it a competition. This encourages them to work hard to make sure they get it right and not just go through the lessons like a robot that doesn't care. My students are low in literacy and grammar, so this helps them better understand these skills in a practical and applicable process.
My Take
I think this tool is amazing, but I would like to see pre-built lesson plans for these specific lessons for those teachers who would use it as a guide/teaching lesson or opportunity. I have not become as familiar with the program as of yet, so there may be some that I have not discovered yet. Being new to the program, however, I am very pleased as to what it has to offer.
