The Norton Field Guide to Writing comes with electronic access, for both you and your students, to a large library of materials (quizzes, tutorials, handouts, and other resources) that supplement the text and support the teaching of writing. This video provides a brief overview of where to find the Coursepack, and what’s available within it.
Most of the materials in the Coursepack are designed for you to pass along directly to your students, allowing you to put high-quality writing resources in front of your students without having to spend time designing them. This video provides instruction on incorporating materials from the Coursepack in to your course, where they can be made available to your students either as mandatory course materials or as supplemental resources.
One of the most powerful sets of tools in the Coursepack are the quizzes, which cover more than 100 topics ranging from academic honesty, to paragraphing, to grammar and sentence-level mechanics. This video covers how to import these quizzes to your course page and integrate them with your Lyceum grade book, so that they can be assigned for credit.
Along with the Coursepack, The Norton Field Guide to Writing comes with access, for both you and your students, to InQuizitive. A self-paced learning tool that combines interactive questions with game-like elements to engage students in learning, InQuizitive can help student writers towards mastery of common topics in grammar, sentence structure, and integrating quotations. This video provides a brief overview of InQuizitive.
The modules in InQuizitive can be assigned to individual students or groups of students as a resource for learning about common topics in sentence structure and incorporating other authors’ words, so that students can become more informed editors of their own work. This video provides instructions on giving your students access to InQuizitive through Lyceum.
