The goal of Literacy Matters is to improve the literacy development of middle grades and secondary school students, especially those who are struggling to succeed. This site focuses on what matters most in adolescent literacy development, the first two of these "matters" being adolescent literature and content area literacy. Teachers will find useful information, valuable resources, and creative opportunities for online professional development. Parents and students, as well, will find useful and interactive materials. Check out content literacy guide for evaluating web resources and materials.
Here is the site for teachers (Pre-K–12) who love children’s books. Be prepared to spend quite a bit of time here, because the resources are many. This Random House site offers teacher guides, monthly planning calendar of books (or search by theme), interviews with authors and illustrators , a librarian’s section, classroom clubs , and much more.
