Once again, through Twitter, I’ve found a couple of good resources. These are thanks to Nancy Devine, a high school English teacher, who is very generous in sharing what she finds. Check-out her blog (not to mention her “tweets”!)
The first is The Center On Instruction, which has a ton of resources on research-based instructional practices in all subject areas. I was impressed with their materials on English Language Learners. She originally learned about it at English Companion Ning, a place I’d suggest all English teachers join.
Nancy also shared Kelly Gallagher’s website. I’ve found his books on teaching reading very helpful. I particularly liked two sections of his website — Article of The Week, where he shares articles he gives his students to read…each week; and Food For Thought, where he lists articles on teaching and learning he finds useful.
