Our Language Arts Avatars are Ready to Instruct Your Kids While YOU Relax!



Overviewlanguage arts

This series of 29, newly-updated MicroLessons (mini lessons) features animated, talking avatars who present English skills and topics to your classes of middle school students, grades 5-9.

Just connect your computer to a digital projector or SMART Board, select a student to operate the mouse and let the avatars do the teaching for you.

Then, it's your call--relax, grade papers, or partner-up with them!

The kids love these MicroLessons, and the cool thing is that they learn from them too.

Important Note: Each of these MicroLessons will run on all of the most-widely used web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Edge. As a result, you may access them from all versions of Mac AND Windows!

What’s Included

Each MicroLesson includes...

  • definitions and examples.
  • direct instruction.
  • a summary of the instruction (in most MicroLessons).
  • practice quizzes ranging from 5 to 15 questions.
  • an on-screen answer key.
  • a word search and crossword puzzle (full versions only).

Thoroughly tested with actual students in real-life, public middle school classrooms--the vast majority of students become engaged, responsive, and productive (even the knuckleheads).

Additonal Notes

Each MicroLesson listed above (and in the Mini Lesson Tools categories in the navigation bar at the left side of the screen) is available in both a free trial version and a full version.

  • Each free trial version is...
  • complete in every regard.
  • fully operational.
  • available for an unlimited time trial.

The "Free Trial Version" stamps are a necessary annoyance.

When you consider the fact that I spent two and a half years of my life developing these MicroLessons, I would sincerely hope that you would agree that giving them away completely free of charge is not a plausible option.

Each full version...

  • is exactly the same as the free version.
  • is completely devoid of all "Free Trial Version" stamps.
  • comes with a word search and a crossword puzzle.

Oh, by the way.  The words found in the word search provide the word bank for the crossword puzzle.

Compatability language arts

Each of the MicroLessons and bundles will run on all of the most-widely used web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Edge.

As a result, you may access them from all versions of Mac AND Windows!
