Have you found a website that has been invaluable to you as a literacy teacher (or as the teacher of any other subject area for that matter)? A colleague recently turned me on to the website www.ChoiceLiteracy.com. I have finally had some time this summer to start exploring it. Wow! This site has so much to offer! Maybe you haven’t been in the dark like me and already knew about Choice Literacy, but if you haven’t visited yet, I encourage you to do so. You can subscribe to the site for a quarterly or annual fee, but there are MANY resources that are free without a membership. One free resource is a weekly e-newsletter called “The Big Fresh” which delivers to your inbox weekly tools, tips, and strategies for literacy leaders. The contributing authors include the following literacy experts: Jennifer Allen, Aimee Buckner, Jan Miller Burkins, Andie Cunningham, Shari Frost, Landrigan & Mulligan, Shirley McPhillips, Debbie Miller, Brenda Power, Heather Rader, Ruth Shagoury, Franki Sibberson, and The Two Sisters. Click here to see last week’s newsletter and let me know what you think!
I also invite you to post comments recommending your favorite websites.
