Author // Sarah Mowery Wednesday, 17 March 2021

New high-quality writing instructional materials have been added to Open Space. These interactive writing lessons and activities are appropriate for grades 6-12 and have been provided by Quill, a nonprofit organization who's mission is to help all students become strong writers and critical thinkers. Many of the lessons are focused on boosting the transcription skills of writing, which are the foundational skills that students need to develop a solid writing background.


Every writer has different needs and to meet students where they are, Quill has also included a diagnostic tool to assess students and to design a personalized learning path to become stronger writers. Teachers can also choose from over 250 activities to assign to students.

Some of the most popular interactive lessons are: 

  • complex sentences
  • comma usage
  • capitalization
  • verb tense agreement
  • commonly confused words

Find these interactive writing instructional materials by Quill and additional content like this on Open Space. 

Open Space, a curriculum creation and collaboration tool, powered by INFOhio, empowers educators to create and share resources that promote innovative and collaborative learning. Instructional materials added to Open Space go through an evaluation process using a quality rubric. In addition to finding high-quality instructional materials, Open Space users can view and rate resources and also share content to Google Classroom.
