These standards-based lesson plans are research based and include an instructional plan,
worksheets, interactives, assessments, correlations to standards, interactive tools for reading and writing, 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 International Reading Association and The National Council of Teachers of English developed all lessons and resources.
