Recommended Resources

The books below are resources that I personally own or have read and believe to be the some of the best literacy books on the market. All of them are well-organized, practical reads that show you how to embed successful strategies into whatever reading curriculum your district uses (rather than espousing a whole new set of demands on top of district requirements). You can click on any book to see sample pages and reviews from other teachers, as well as ordering information from Amazon.

You can also check out my Delicious bookmarks and Diigo bookmarks. I save all my favorite education websites to Diigo (which automatically cross-posts to Delicious). Previously, I only shared my bookmarks with the teachers I coach when recommending resources for them, but realized this might be something useful for website visitors, too. Many of the sites are technology or interactive whiteboard (IWB) resources.

If you’re not familiar with how bookmarking sites work: you can search the bookmarks using the tags I’ve assigned for various subject areas and grade levels (1,2,3,4,5, 6-8, 9-12). All the tags are listed on the side of the page. So, for example, if you want to see only math resources for grade 5,  you would type math and 5 in the search box.
