I can’t imagine what it’s like to bring home a stack of essays to grade. I have great respect for English teachers. That’s why I was super excited when I tripped across this website, Quill. The concept is simple; teach kids to join simple sentences into complex ideas. But they didn’t stop there; they added a powerful diagnostic tool, a comprehensive reporting feature, and standards-based activity bundles for every grade from 1st to 12th.
And it’s free.
Check out this video for a quick overview of some of the features.
