IXL's language arts activities help students build proficiency with grammar, mechanics, composition, reading, and vocabulary. Students see their abilities soar as they correct usage errors, interact with literary and informational texts, and determine the meanings of new words in a variety of contexts.

    • reflective of project-specific guidelines and sample items
    • aligned to an in-house style guide and the Chicago Manual of Style
  • Providing clear, precise, actionable feedback to content writers
  • Communicating with writers and curriculum designers in a professional and dependable manner

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

  • BA/BS degree, preferably in English, creative writing, or a related field
  • Deep knowledge of English grammar and conventions
  • Strong attention to detail and the ability to apply conventions consistently
  • Strong understanding of students’ abilities and knowledge levels in grades K-12
