Why create a subject within TTRS?

  • You are a parent who wants to work through specific spelling lists or material with your child
  • You are a teacher and would like students to take modules that match your classroom wordlists
  • You are a tutor and would like to create custom modules to help your tutees
  • You are an adult learner and would like to drill words that support your work, school, or personal goals

Tips on how to create good modules:

  • Enter 3-5 words separated by a space, or one sentence per line 
  • Avoid using extra punctuation as users must type every mark you enter
  • Limit your text to five lines, to keep module length reasonable
