QUESTION:

Area of Concern: Writing Mechanics & Grammar

Submitted by: Administrator

Grade Level: Adult

Competency: Below Level

Our college is looking for guided learning activities in essential topics in English, such as grammar, thesis sentences, and argument writing.  In other words, we are looking for corequisite English materials.

We have two other requirements: we need a way for our faculty to track students’ work and we want to give out logins without forcing students to purchase seats.

How can you help us?

 

ANSWER:

Merit’s content and platform are commonly used as an English corequisite.

Grammar Fitness and the Punch writing programs are ideal for this purpose.

The programs break key English concepts down into understandable parts.

Plus, the seats are recyclable. Students do not need to purchase seats on their own.
