Quill Lessons are synchronous, teacher-led instructional activities that can be used for whole-class or small-group instruction. Quill Lessons provide opportunities for teachers to model their use of concepts, students to practice the concept, and provide follow-up practice that you can assign to students immediately after the lesson.
