How I Use It
As I include more informational text into my units, this is an excellent resource to address current events that are relevant to the themes and content of the literature we are reading. This has helped my students make text-to-world connections of which they otherwise wouldn't have been aware.
Although this website offers many learning opportunities, teachers, as always, will need to tailor the lessons to fit their classes' individual needs. There is quite a bit potential here for integration into existing units, but teachers will need to be selective.
