Tablet Tutor Runs on All Internet-Connected Devices (except smartphones).
Mechanic’s Shop 1 is one of the schools in a planned series of 20 to 30 Tablet Tutors. Tablet Tutor is streaming, interactive courseware designed specifically for the purpose of providing meaningful middle school language arts content that will run on virtually any internet-connected device except for smartphones.
Using Commas (Part 1) is the focus of instruction for this school, and it is presented in the form of a 3D-style, page-turning book and an interactive timeline.
Upon completion of instruction, students will be able to…
• recognize that commas are sometimes used to eliminate confusion.
• use commas correctly after sentence introductions.
• use commas correctly with items written in a series.
• use commas correctly in dates and addresses.
• place commas correctly in sample sentences.
• demonstrate mastery by successfully completing an online evaluation.
Online practice and evaluation activities include Target Words (tap to place), Snap Sticks (drag and drop), and 1 Scholar Board (a 10-question, multiple-choice quiz). All interactive review activities and quizzes yield recordable scores, and those scores may also be printed. Additionally, students are given the opportunity to compare their answers with the correct choices.
Mechanic’s Shop 1 includes Your Local Library, a glossary of terms and definitions that students may access for reference at any time while using this app.
Tablet Tutor: Mechanic’s Shop 1, will run on PC’s, Macs, Laptops, MacBooks, Chromebooks, iPads, and Android Tablets. It is not, however, compatible with smartphones.
