Donalyn Miller is a 6th grade language arts teacher in Texas who is said to have a "gift": She can turn even the most reluctant (or, in her words, "dormant") readers into students who can't put their books down.


"While identifying readability can be useful when evaluating textbooks, guided reading texts, or other teaching materials, selecting books for classroom instruction and recommending books for independent reading are two different processes."

I like this ELA Common Core website published by North Carolina Public Schools because besides displaying the anchor standards, it's easy to see the increase in difficulty as students move to the next grade level. It covers all ELA standards, K-12.  Bookmark this to use later; it's a lot easier than flipping through the PDF doc.

16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read

16 Apps That Motivate Kids to Read | Common Core & You | Scoop.it

"For every kid who is caught hiding beneath his covers with a flashlight and a novel at midnight, there is another who has to be begged and pleaded with to read.  And the latter might need a little extra—shall we call it encouragement?—to become a great reader. To help, we've rounded up a list of the top apps that not only teach essential reading skills but also motivate kids—even the most book-phobic—to read, read and read some more."
