How I Use It
I have used the writing resources...specifically, the PERSUASIVE WRITING TOOLS. The site has a downloadable PowerPoint to introduce the technique, it has a interactive digital graphic organizer, it also provides links for additional resources and the site offers prepared lesson plans.
This website is an unbelievable resource for teachers! If I was forced to choose only one website for ELA resources, this would be it! I do not think I could ever exhaust all of the fabulous quality tools, resources, interactives, and lesson plans available. (And the site is continually adding content!) Additionally, there are professional reading recommendations for each topic. My only criticism is the overwhelming amount of material available...I find myself getting lost for hours! If that is a criticism!
