Superlative language arts site from the leading language arts organizations in America.

http://www.readwritethink.org/

CONTENT:
The Read, Write, Think site offers lessons and resources developed by the International Reading Association and The National Council of Teachers of English.
AESTHETICS:
The site makes good use of color, spacing, and graphics to make it attractive and user-friendly.
ORGANIZATION:
The site is easily navigated with links to all the major areas clearly identified on the main page. Internal pages have a top menu bar and are fully searchable.
REVIEW:
Literacy teachers will find a gold mine of information and a wide array of standards-based lesson plans that meaningfully integrate Internet content into the teaching and/or learning experience. Each lesson is research based, and includes a detailed instructional plan and such student materials as worksheets, interactives, and Web resources. The lessons make the connection between theory and classroom practice while providing assessments, correlations to national standards and interactive tools to assist students with a reading or writing activity. Lessons can be sorted by grade level (K-2, 3-5, 6-8) and by three areas of literacy practice: learning language, learning about language, learning through language. All recommended Web resources have been reviewed and selected by educators. The selection criteria are posted on the site.
