Welcome!

This site has been designed as a resource for teachers and anyone else interested in promoting literacy and critical thinking in
today's youth.  You can stay up to date on the most recent news and research about literacy in the U.S. and around the world.  
You can access hundreds of free lesson plans and other resources for educators, and you can read reviews of popular, high
quality literature for children and adolescents.

A little more about our teacher resources...

Many teachers, believing in a comprehensive reading and writing curriculum, are forced to collect or create their own
resources, a time-consuming task.  This site is meant to
make the process as easy as possible by developing resources that
include:

specific, practical unit plans and activities
instruction that is completely aligned to Missouri and national standards
suggestions for differentiation
ideas for integrating literacy into other subjects like math, science, social studies, art and health
diverse literature
only research-based techniques
A resource for teachers and anyone else interested in promoting literacy and
critical thinking in today's youth
