How I Use It
This researched based program offers literature with lesson plans, teaching ideas and comprehension questions that encourage close reading. It is highly searchable offering teachers the option to search according to level, question sets, fiction, non-fiction with wonderful skill progression. It is aligned with the Common Core State Standards and is very easy to use.
My Take
I love that this is a free resource that is utilizing trade books already available in my school library. It is easy to use and has all the necessary connections to curriculum. It gives me ideas to enhance my reading strategy instruction for both whole class and small group. The website says that they are continuing to grow their library of ideas and I can't wait to see how this resource develops. Currently the titles can get me started in my literacy program so more titles / lessons would be very welcome!
