1. PRE-ASSESSMENT QUIZZES

Who doesn't like a good deal, right? I've reached out to some of my favorite education-related companies to offer exclusive discounts on items you may need for the classroom. There are discounts on teacher bags, library book stamps, custom pencils, lanyards, teacher t-shirts and much more! 

Before diving in to the challenge, students will complete a short pre-assessment quiz on the grammar topic you are addressing.

The assessment will include 10 multiple-choice questions for students to answer to assess what they already know about the topic.

The print bundle includes print quizzes with answer keys, and the digital bundle includes self-grading quizzes! 

SO, HOW DOES THE PROGRAM WORK? 

The Grammar Challenge Program is designed to improve student grammar using pre-assessment, lecture-based grammar instruction, challenge story readings, escape-room style challenges, and post-assessment
to check student improvement. Scroll down to learn a bit more about each of the components.

    What grades is The Grammar Challenge suitable for?

    What curriculum standards does The Grammar Challenge address? 

    What curriculum standards does The Grammar Challenge address?

    What's the difference between the digital and print bundles?

    What's the difference between the digital and print bundles?

    The print bundle was created for use within a traditional classroom setting without technology.  The presentations are all in PowerPoint format, and the quizzes and challenge documents are meant to be printed and distributed to students.   The digital bundle, on the other hand, is 100% paperless and is meant to be used in a remote teaching or 1:1 classroom setting.  Students will complete the work using Google Apps (Slides and Forms). 

    If you purchased all of the digital and print challenges separately, the cost would be $399.  By purchasing the discounted bundles, you receive a significant discount, and the mega-bundle with both included is at an even steeper discount! 

    How do I access my purchase?

    Can I share the program with my colleague?
