Free online writing and grammar activities for students with Quill
Quill.org is a non-profit organization that produces free online writing and grammar activities for students. Quill is not designed to replace teachers, but rather to allow teachers to meet students where they are in terms of skill level. Not to mention, it saves teachers from countless hours otherwise spent on creating and grading grammar worksheets. With Quill, students get the high quality, differentiated instruction they need to develop writing and grammar skills at their own pace, and teachers can spend more time doing valuable, face-to-face work in the classroom.
So what exactly is Quill? Quill is a set of diagnostic assessments, intelligently structured independent practice activities, and collaborative whole-class lessons that focus on grammar and sentence construction skills. Teachers can assign activities from any of our five tools – Quill Connect, Grammar, Proofreader, Lessons, and Diagnostic. Most teachers start by assigning a diagnostic, a short assessment that analyzes students’ baseline writing skills. Then, our software creates differentiated learning plans for each student based on his or her diagnostic performance. Teachers can also mix and match Quill’s different tools and activities to build their own instructional activity packs.
After students complete activities, Quill generates comprehensive grade reports. The reports provide an overall score for each activity, as well as an in-depth breakdown of the grammar concepts that students mastered or missed for every question in an activity.
