How do each of the challenges work?

  • Start by assigning the quiz to check your students’ understanding of the topic before you begin.
  • Use the Powerpoint presentation to guide you through each element of the lesson and activity.  The slides will help you teach the grammar concept, introduce the story and challenge, and review the answers.
  • Read the narrative story as a class to hook students and  introduce the challenge.
  • Once you have completed the quiz, taught the grammar concept, and read the story, students are ready to try the grammar challenge
  • When students find the answer, you can share the conclusion slides to wrap up the story. 
  • Want to check to see if your students’ understanding of the concept has improved?  Assign the pre-assessment quiz again after they have completed the challenge to see if they have improved.


What is included in each of the 40 challenges?

  • A pre-assessment quiz with teacher answer key
  • An original narrative backstory that puts students within the story and sets up the challenge
  • A Powerpoint presentation to guide the lesson and activity with instructional slides, activity prompts, the narrative story text, story conclusion slides, and an answer keys for review
  • An interactive escape-room style challenge where students must use their knowledge of complex sentences to complete the challenge
