Choose a Skillbuilder type

You will see explanations for how each Skillbuilder type works. For this demonstration we will build a Sentence Editing activity. In this type of activity students are presented with the incorrect sentences with a second version for them to revise using a text-editing tool. These revisions are focused on fixing grammatical errors. Students may print their results out for class discussion or follow up.
