How I Use It
I use Quill to reinforce direct instruction and during independent work time to reinforce skills. Students are learning to type on iPads (elementary) or Mac Books (middle school) and I think that alongside direct typing instruction it gives students practice typing on their devices. Students who type with just 2 fingers find the lessons long, however, as students' typing skills progress the lesson move along quicker.
Quill has replaced my need for Daily Oral Language instruction in the form of copying sentences from a board, or printing out packets of weekly DOL exercises. I encourage students and families to use the program. I have trained students to use Quill in class and then shared it with parents to reinforce grammar lessons taught at school.
