How I Use It
This website hosts a variety of tiered activities and lesson plans; I have used activities related to iambic pentameter and sonnets are preparation for Romeo & Juliet.
My Take
I think this is great site to get lesson and activities that engage students. Some of the lessons need to be adjusted for various tiers of thinking and doing.
