Love the inclusion of authors and articles about literary topics that are really geared toward students. It might be a great place to help students who are anti-readers find something that interests them.

Like Debbie said, this would be a great resource for kids to use if they finish work early. It is relatable but also seems like a place where thoughts can be shared and students can give or get feedback on original writing. Awesome!!

Love this site! I could use it right now as is, or as a model to create future performance tasks.

So much easier to use this instead of Edmodo. It can keep the materials all in one place, which is my biggest complaint about Edmodo: the students have to sift through all the posts to find the stuff you want them to look at.

I like the fact that this site organizes an entire performance task all in one place so that students can follow it easily.
