Wednesday Website: A Site Every Teacher Should Check Out
The Florida Center for Reading Research has put together a site with a plethora of activities, all available for free. There is no login required. You can go on and find literacy research, activities and assessments.
Teachers who are using the site to plan lessons can search by grade and skill for the materials they want. It breaks down phonological awareness components for younger students and comprehension for older students with everything in between. It also has materials on differentiating instruction.
For principals, there are simple overviews of literacy instruction and learning. There are also materials for conducting walk throughs of classrooms.
Finally, there is a link to What Works Clearinghouse, a site that shares the latest research on instructional approaches.
Take a few minutes to click around and you'll find a treasure chest of quality materials.
