ComFit Learning Systems demonstrated its CommunicationFitness web-based grammar and literacy program. The company says its combination of best-practice teaching methodologies and online resources for students serves to improve language instruction in schools in two ways. First, new teaching resources enhance the ability of instructors to zero in on individual students’ weaknesses. Second, self-paced drill-and-practice exercises enable students to hone their language skills without pressure from classmates. Other resources include a range of standards-based instructional activities covering everything from the basics of grammar, usage, vocabulary, spelling, and sentence structure to the finer points of higher-level persuasion; a drill-down assessment feature that measures individual students’ proficiency in eight language skill sets; a suite of learning management tools designed to help teachers more easily integrate grammar-related lessons; and an array of customizable options that include rubrics, templates, and sample practice tests used to simulate SAT, ACT, and statewide competency exams.
