Promethean, a world leader in the rapidly growing global
market for interactive learning technology, has announced a new
collection of interactive grammar courses designed to help students
develop critical language arts and writing skills.
The new English Grammar II Essential course is being offered through a strategic
partnership between Promethean Planet and Core Learning, an innovative publisher of
K-12 digital content.

and fosters a greater understanding and use of language arts concepts. We are
delighted to offer this resource to the hundreds of thousands of teachers who are
exploring new ways to make their Promethean ActivClassrooms even more effective,"
said Core Learning President and CEO, Douglas Hatch.
The course has forty-one lesson plans which explain sentence
structure and development, punctuation and capitalization as well as how to properly
use speech when writing. Different course activities allow students to participate

as ActivExpression or ActiVote. Each lesson includes notes and teacher resources to help guide
instruction and pre-built assessments designed for the interactive whiteboard to
help teachers gauge how well students understand the concepts as they are being

learning environment," commented Chief Strategy Officer Brent Taggart.
A free lesson from the course can be downloaded from the Promethean website. The
course can be purchased and downloaded individually or as a complete program at the
Promethean Planet Shop, an online store where educators can find a wide variety of
digital content, including ActivInspire, the software needed to run this program and
interactive whiteboard resources.
