Using NoRedInk to Spice Up Grammar Lessons

NoRedInk is a service that helps teachers create differentiated grammar lessons that are personalized for each student. Teachers start by creating a free account, adding their classes, placing students in those classes, then adding different types of assignments to the classes.

NoRedInk has three core features including curriculum, assignments, and student data. The curriculum library has over hundreds of skills to practice that range from identifying parts of speech to using appropriate transition words and phrases. From the assignment tab you can create new assignments or see a list of existing assignments. The student data page allows you to monitor student progress in real time.

What makes NoRedInk more interesting for students is that when the create their accounts they get to select people and topics that interest them. This includes movies, celebrities, sports stars, and musicians. Students can further customize their account by adding the names of their friends and pets. This personalized information will be used by NoRedInk to create unique assignments for each student.

NoRedInk is free for teachers, parents, tutors, and anyone who wants to improve their grammar. There is premium version that is available for schools and districts that wish to unlock additional features.
