All year we’ve been on the hunt as a school for a free grammar platform that students can use to build fundamental skills. However, every time we tested something out, we undoubtedly came across one of the these two problems:

  • The free version was limited, and we had to pay an obnoxious amount of money for extra features
  • The platform was too uniform, we couldn’t customize lessons for each student

That’s why I am so excited to share with you my most recent finding: Quill!

Quill is a free, online, interactive grammar lesson platform that essentially has students practice grammar skills by editing and revising engaging pieces of pre-written literature. Quill also allows teachers to personalize curricula and assign individual lessons to individual students. This is perfect for those teachers who have students who need specialized intervention, while allowing other students to continue as needed.

Check out the video below for a quick overview of how it works:

Happy editing, y’all!

  1. Reblogged this on Mel the Literacy Coach and commented:
    There are various online resources for teaching grammar – as there are for every other strand of literacy- but few are quite so user friendly as Quill. I will admit that I haven’t used this website myself because I only just found out about it via Teach Bytes. Our school Literacy team will certainly be checking it out.
    A free and customisable platform for grammar practice in the classroom… I didn’t think it was possible!!
    Check it!
