Will students finally have fun with grammar?
Grammar can be a pain, especially when you're up at 3 a.m. slashing every grammar error with your red pen. Students are often frustrated by the numerous and confusing rules of grammar and many teachers have found it difficult to teach grammar in an interesting way. NoRedInk.com aims to help make grammar fun, while also giving teachers an easy way to target students' deficiencies individually.
Created by English teacher Jeff Scheur, No Red Ink lets students set up a profile of their favorite interests such as sports and music, then uses those interests in their practice sentences. It's free (for now) and easy to sign up. I think it'll be good for quick homework or a learning station activity.
