Independent-Practice Activities

Quill independent-practice activities include Quill Grammar, Quill Connect, Quill Proofreader, and Quill Reading for Evidence activities, and each of these activities takes approximately 15-25 minutes to complete.

Independent-practice activities are assigned by a teacher to a student, and the student independently completes the activity.

While students are completing independent-practice activities, teachers can keep track of student progress in the Activity Summary report.

Whole-Class Instruction

Quill also provides activities for whole-class instruction, Quill Lesson activities. Each of these activities comes with interactive slides, a downloadable lesson plan, a full lesson script, and a follow-up independent-practice activity that students can complete right after finishing the Quill Lesson or later.

Quill Lessons are assigned by a teacher to a student, and in order for the student to participate in the Quill Lesson, the teacher must first launch the Quill Lesson, Please read more about implementing Quill Lessons in this article.
