Dan Kurland, published author and teacher, put together this site to help students learn to read better by exploring the fundamentals of critical reading and effective writing.

The site does not have a lot of pizzazz, but it is user-friendly with informative content.

Navigation is intuitive with the information organized into a simple table.

Criticalreaing.com contains a series of articles designed to improve reading and writing skills. Sections include The Need to Improve Your Reading and Writing; Critical Reading v. Critical Thinking; Learning to Read and Write; The Spoken Word: The Base for Writing and Reading; Choices: The Ingredients of Texts; A Linguistics Approach to Reading and Writing, A Grammar for Reading and Writing, and more. Older students who wish to improve their reading and writing skills and teachers of reading will all find something of use here.
