This is an amazing website! ReadWriteThink is one of the best websites! It helped my class a lot and their stories were amazing. Even other grade teachers loved it.

This was an excellent resource. I loved the combination of technology and print. The resources and preparation were not time consuming and the instructional plan made the organization of my day run very smoothly. Very effective rubric and students grasped the concepts well with plenty of practice to be successful for the summative assessment!
