General
How I Use It
I have used the larger pieces such as having students read and respond to articles, as well as the smaller offerings- What's Happening in This Picture? is versatile enough to be used as a bell ringer, an extended writing prompt, or a large-group activity.
My Take
I find this site to be an effective teaching tool depending on how the different parts of it are used. They provide lesson plans and assignments at different learning and age levels. Lesson plans and assignments are available for most content areas and grade levels. The site also includes "fun," features such as puzzles and games.
