If you are an English teacher and participate in any social media, I'm sure that you have seen Weird Al's new viral video, "Word Crimes." If you haven't seen it, you really must watch it. Let's be honest, even those of us who have seen it several times will probably click to watch it again!
I'm really excited to share a new teacher tech tool with you today! Although, I am just getting started with it, I think NoRedInk.com is a tool to keep an eye on!
Here's why I love it:
The kind folks over at Grammarly recently let me try out their service with my high school English classes. The service offers to help students continue to develop writing skills through automated instructional feedback in grammar and word choice, as well as plagiarism tracking. I tried out the teacher/student version, which you can learn more about at Grammarly.com/edu. Check out the video tutorial below and the pros and cons list. Please let me know if you have questions or comments and remember to check back weekly for more teacher tips, tutorials, and tirades. ;)
