Using Grammarly to Improve Writing

by Jen Hervada, LMS Instructional Coach

Recently, I’ve been experimenting with Grammarly. It’s a new Google Chrome Extension that checks for misspelled words and makes sure that everything I write will be error free. It’s different from other spell checking software because Grammarly sends a weekly notification to my email about my writing progress for the week.  Sometimes the notifications make me feel proud about my writing.  So it made me wonder if students might also like this feature too.

Grammarly keeps track of the total amount of words written throughout the week.  It identifies and reports information about the particular type of error that is being made during the writing process.  Also, it totals the mistakes for the week and delivers them as the “Top 3 Grammar Mistakes.”  Grammarly’s weekly writing updates encourage writers to write more often

Another great feature of Grammarly is that it will spell check whatever is in your Chrome browser, including Facebook posts, discussion posts in Schoology and a blog like this one!
