Introducing IXL Language Arts for 9th and 10th Grades!

At Home, In the Classroom, IXL Insights

High schoolers can now join in on the fun of practicing English language arts on IXL, with the launch of our 9th and 10th grade skills! We’ve added hundreds of problems that teach students to use words accurately and precisely, questions that ask students to evaluate writing and make effective choices for meaning and style, and much more. Not sure where to start? Here are some highlights:

 

 

Misplaced modifiers with pictures

Fun pictures illustrate literal translations of misplaced modifiers, and help students understand the miscommunications that occur when words are modified incorrectly. This skill is also available for 7th-8th grade.

 

Sort words by shared Greek or Latin roots

We’ve introduced our first sorting problem for language arts! This skill challenges students to use roots from words they already know to discover the meanings of unfamiliar words.

Compare passages for tone

Students are tasked with using subtle context clues to determine the tone of passages, many of which are sourced from well-known fiction and nonfiction works. This skill teaches students how word choice can affect the interpretation of their writing.

Identify audience and purpose

This multi-part skill demonstrates how students’ writing choices – style, tone, word choice – will differ based on the audience they are writing for.

Other 9th and 10th grade skills we’ve added include:

What do you think of these new skills? We’d love to hear your feedback!

Hi Lasya – we know our students love the awards, and are already hard at work creating game boards for language arts, so stay tuned!

Is there going to be an awards board for English skills to compliment that for maths. Working to turn over a particular square on the awards board often motivates my kids to complete a skill they’d otherwise avoid, so I’d love to have that feature for English as well as maths.

Hi Rachel, we are working on developing gameboards for ELA and will let everyone know when they are ready!
