NoRedInk is designed to save teachers time at every stage of the instructional process — from lesson planning to giving meaningful, timely feedback on student writing. Learn how our writing, practice, and assessment tools integrate seamlessly into the routines you’ve already established in your classroom.
Engage students at the beginning of class
Common routines: do-now, bell-ringer, free write, daily grammar instruction, hook, engagement
Whether you call them do-nows or bell-ringers, NoRedInk can support your beginning-of-class routines.
Teacher Tip: Many teachers follow do-nows or bell-ringers with direct instruction. Use NoRedInk’s pre-teaching resources to introduce a concept or review a mini-lesson.
Provide opportunities to develop skills
Common routines: guided practice, independent practice, workshop, drafting, stations
For many teachers, the majority of a class period is spent supporting students’ guided or independent practice. Sometimes, students may be working on extended responses, like an essay; other times, students may be working in stations.
Teacher Tip: Use NoRedInk’s pre-writing materials to scaffold the writing process before students enter a Guided Draft.
Assess student learning and close the lesson
Common routines: exit ticket, short quiz, reflection on daily objectives, check for understanding
At the end of a class period, many teachers seek a snapshot of students’ understanding and use this information to determine next steps. Here are a few ways NoRedInk can support your closure routines.
Intervention and remediation
Common routines: small groups, differentiated instruction, re-teaching
NoRedInk works well for personalized learning, especially in classrooms that utilize flexible student groupings to provide differentiated assignments.
