Directed visual design and technical effort for language arts software. Elementary age students learn and practice the four main parts of speech. The program uses a detective theme to guide students to solve ten mystery cases while they learn, locate, and identify nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs.
As students log in to the software, they encounter vivid 3D graphics, numerous instructional videos, and several activity templates. Users play the role of a detective who must solve mysteries by learning and identifying the parts of speech. Students choose a case to solve, such as The Mystery of the Creepy Caller. Each case begins with an audio introduction. Then students practice one or more parts of speech.
An assessment helps teachers determine students’ mastery. Teacher options allow for many adaptations. Video tutorials help remind students of each part of speech and its critical components.
Tracking Down Parts of Speech is playable on both Mac and Windows computers and is available for purchase.
