1. Quill

Quill is a web tool that provides interactive writing and grammar activities. Students sharpen writing and grammar skills by writing sentences and proofreading passages. You can create a class in Quill and invite your students to join it using a code. Once joined, they will be able to access the work you assign to them. Quill's proofreading passages are intentionally filled with grammatical mistakes. In each of these passages, the student’s job is to identify and fix each of the errors. Quill then highlights the student’s correct and incorrect edits and provides a follow-up lesson on those particular subject areas. Quill is a free literacy tool powered by an open source, non-profit community of educators and developers.
