So What's To Read, Write, and Think?

Those of you in the field of language arts/English instruction are probably familiar with the Read/Write/Think website portal for lesson plans, links to online resources, and materials for student use. The site is endorsed by the International Reading Association (IRA) and the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). In addition to activities in the language areas, the site promotes bridging the disciplines, and, thus, will be of interest to all educators. A special “Summer Activities” link is available for those of you looking for literacy activities for children over the school recess. Check the site, and let us know what you find most useful. Do you agree with the site’s claim: “Providing educators and students access to highest quality practices and resources in reading and language arts instruction”? Post your comments.

I love this site and have found it very useful. I especially like the student materials section which offers interactive tools for student use. It is very user friendly. I do agree that it promotes high quality, standards based practices and resources. While it is useful to teachers it is also a great site for students and parents.

I agree with Michele! This site is really well written. It was easy to maneuver through. I like how you can narrow your search by grade level. The fact that the lessons I saw referenced research articles really impressed me. Check out the lesson for K-2 where the students play Bingo using environmental print. Very professional site.

Jenn and Michele, I am delighted you like this site which is sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English. I personally and professionally know the person who maintains the site, and it is gratifying to see that her work is so useful to teachers. It was named by educators as one of their favorites!
