How I Use It
I use this site for a number of lessons. We use the acrostic poem application to create review activities. We also use the compare and contrast map when preparing for an essay. Each helps students to focus their attention and energy to fully answer the essay question.
My Take
This website provides simple forms and organizational supports for a broad range of activities. It also provides information for lesson planning and web interaction, such as how to teach compare and contrast essays from K-12. Additionally, the resources can be adjusted or integrated to match a lesson you already teach (like the interactive graphic organizers).
