Read, Write, Think

In previous college classes, my professors recommend visiting http://www.readwritethink.org/index.asp. This website has alot of valuable tools and resources for teachers to conduct a reading and/or writing class. The following is a list of things the website has to offer:

  • Lesson plans - broken down by grade levels and allows you to view the abstract of the lesson before clicking on the actual lesson with all of the required materials and objectives
  • Standards - They provide the reader with the IRA/NCTE Standards for the English Language Arts.
  • Resources - There are many, many many web links on here that take you to various websites. Some include the following topics: online museums, lesson plans, folklore book websites, and Poetry Archives. The link to view the resources is http://www.readwritethink.org/resources/index.asp
  • Materials for Students - Here, students can visit different areas to play interactive learning games, read books, and find writing prompts.  

  • I really think this website is a must for teachers to look at to find information about reading and writing.  It has numerous resources for the struggling reader, ELL students, and students who have a difficulty with writing.  I encourage all educators to use this website in their planning.
