Quill - Writing Worksheets Made Interactive

Quill - Writing Worksheets Made Interactive | ks3humanities | Scoop.it

"Quill is a service that provides an updated take on the old writing worksheets that most of us used in elementary school and middle school. The service offers more than just the writing practice activities, but that is its core feature."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 18, 2014 8:39 PM

Do your students need to practice with grammar and punctuation? Quill provides worksheets for students in Grades 1 - 8 that have spelling and grammar errors. Students have to correct the errors. Quill corrects the papers, showing students what they did correctly, or what needs to be corrected.

Create your own classroom, provide students a code to sign-in, and pick your assignments. Students work at their pace and you can view their work through the dashboard.

As Richard Byrne states in this post "Having the pre-made activities at your disposal and having the opportunity to quickly see how your students did on each activity will free up some of your time."

There is a video that explains the site in more detail, or you may go directly the the website: http://www.quill.org/

6 Rules for a Great Story from Barnaby Conrad and Snoopy

Maria Popova's Brain Pickings has once again shared information about rules for great stories, this time from Barnaby  Conrad (author). He responded to the cartoon strip above with six rules. The first is "Try to pick the most intriguing place in your piece to begin."

You may see the other five at her website, and there are also links to advice on writing by Kurt Vonnegut, David Olgilvy, Henry Miller, Jack Kerouac and John Steinbeck.

I had a quick look and some good stuff here.
