For January 1, 2008: Get Ready, Get Set, and Go directly to the Read Write Think site, from the International Reading Association (IRA), the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), and the Verizon Foundation, for lessons that can be selected by grade band, literacy strand, or literacy engagement. Each lesson follows the IRA/NCTE Standards for the English Language Arts and includes student-ready materials such as worksheets, interactive tools, and reviewed Web resources. Students will love the interactive tools and so will teachers. From creating and printing book covers to writing fractured fairy tales, the process is quite easy. Students fill in the blanks, draw pictures, and print their work. This site is highly recommended for its standards-based emphasis and simple navigation.
