The Guide to Grammar and Writing, which is sponsored by the Capital Community College Foundation, is an interactive site for teaching parts of speech, usage, composition, sentence and paragraph development, and research and essay writing. After students select which area they want to study or learn more about, they click on the appropriate, easy-to-navigate links and read clear, concise explanations of the topic of choice. In each learning module, terms are defined, examples are given, explanations are provided, and links to further information are available. When a student is done investigating a topic, he or she may take a self-assessment quiz to check their understanding.
I spent a significant amount of time viewing sites for the Basic Writing class looking for supplemental grammar exercises that would enhance classroom instruction. The students liked using the computer for the exercises.
Easy navigation. Fun exercises.

I spent an hour browsing this site. I am a faculty member who requires my anthropology students to complete written assignments. I grade the students' grasp of the course material and, although I do not grade their writing mechanics, I do note spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors. Since finding this high-quality site, I expect that I will direct students to it so that they can review particular rules about writing. In this way, students who desire to improve their writing skills can do so.
I encountered no technical problems whatsoever when using this site. Using the index is easier than using the drop-down menus that appear on the home page, although first-time users might like the drop-down menus to orient themselves to the resource.
