Is your district looking for materials to support writing skills? Take a look at Learning List’s reviews of the free version of NoRedInk.
NoRedInk is a supplemental, fully digital English language arts program for students in grades 4-12. The program provides a free version and a subscription-based version. Learning List recently reviewed the free version of the program.
The material focuses on developing students’ writing skills, and includes practice exercises, scaffolded writing activities, and assessments. The design of the program allows teachers can customize assignments, and students complete the work that teachers assign to them through the program. They receive immediate feedback and have access to brief tutorials and reteaching.
The program is provided in English and is designed to support blended learning or a flipped classroom. Some, but not all, of the source texts required to respond to the writing prompts are included.
