Promethean has announced a new collection of interactive grammar courses designed to help students develop critical language arts and writing skills. The new English Grammar II Essential course is being offered through a strategic partnership between Promethean Planet and Core Learning.
The course has 41 lessons that explain sentence structure and development, punctuation and capitalization as well as how to properly use speech when writing. Different course activities allow students to participate in the classroom using the ActivPen, ActivBoard, and a learner response system such as ActivExpression or ActiVote. Each lesson includes notes for teachers to help guide instruction, and pre-built assessments designed for the interactive whiteboard help teachers gauge how well students understand the concepts as they are being taught.
A free lesson from the course can be downloaded online at www.prometheanplanet.com/server.php?show=ConGenericProduct.339. The course can be purchased and downloaded individually or as a complete program at the Promethean Planet Shop online store for educators.
