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.
Use the eye-catching presentation slides to teach the grammar concept. The slides are interactive and break the concept down clearly and concisely.
Share the provided examples for students to ensure they understand the concept deeply before diving into the challenge.
Have students read the creative back-story for the challenge. This will set up the challenge and also help students improve their reading comprehension as clues sometimes appear in the story.
Each of the stories place students in a scenario where they must escape, find a secret message or code, or solve a problem.
Students work in small groups to attempt the challenge! Students must use their knowledge of the grammar concept to be successful.
Print and digital versions are included for the challenges depending on which bundle you prefer.
Presentation slides are included to facilitate all elements of the challenge.
Once students are successful, they read the conclusion to the story!
After the challenge is complete, have students retake the pre-assessment to see if they have improved their understanding of the grammar topic.
Students can see real data to compare how their understanding has improved.

The Grammar Challenge addresses 40 grammar topics and is incredibly comprehensive, so it will likely meet your grammar standards no matter which ELA curriculum you are using. If you are using the Common Core curriculum, the Grammar Challenge meets nearly all of the language standards. Scroll up to see a complete list of the grammar topics covered in this resource.
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!
