Each project also has several smaller associated assignments, one per outcome of the module. These are designed to be scaffolded tasks, to help the students create the final draft in stages.

As with all other aspects of this course, these are designed to be starting points towards adaptation, NOT a prescriptive set of assignments that must be taught this exact way. Please use as much of this assignment framework as is useful to you, and discard the rest.

But what about grammar?

The grammar module doesn't have a project associated with it currently. However, it offers extensive practice tasks inside the module itself. The "Try It" pages could be adapted for in-class or homework assignments if desired.
