Why It's Great

ReadWriteThink keeps their resources authentic by having "at least two literacy educators” review the content. Writers for the site are vetted as literacy experts, many of whom are NCTE members and professional educators. ReadWriteThink resources are considered classroom-tested and evidence-based, teacher-tested, and kid approved!

The Learning Resources

The site is organized into the sections Classroom Resources, Professional Development, Videos, and Parent & Afterschool Resources. While ReadWriteThink is focused primarily on language arts, their materials also include resources for science, math, history, and life skills.
