It’s a little early to be thinking about fall courses, but I’m sure some of us are already making a few plans. If you’re looking for a way to integrate a little grammar and mechanics instruction into your courses, check out the links below. Some are old favorites, and some are new opportunities for a little grammar fun.
I’ve used these sites in a variety of ways. For example, when students are drafting in class and finish before their peers, many will find their way to Facebook. I’ve told students they can be on Facebook during this time as long as they are on the Daily Writing Quiz wall. Usually, students are on Facebook just to pass a little time, not because they have a pressing need to be there, so as long as they have a way to occupy their five free minutes and as long I know they are practicing their grammar and writing skills, we’re all happy.
Do you have favorite sites you’d like to share? Please tell us about them and about how you use them with your students.
