Amy Stoeckly's insight:

Looking for performance tasks? These are very well done and there are mulitple titles for the grades that have shared their work.  If your grade does not have work posted-still take a peek and see what you may be able to do to bring performance tasks into your classroom assessments. A real gem of a find!

Doing research with your students...don't pass this site up!  Type in what you are searching, slide the chalkboard to Einstein gauge for text and content complexity and then Grok!  The spider web digs deeper in to the substrands of the content-check out the right column of key facts, additional website, videos, pictures, and a glossary.  You create an account you can pin and journal to actually start your report right in Instagrok.  Love it!

This may be a great summer school resource for you or to send this link to parents to print off books this summer.  I love that there are audio links and other resources on this page as well.  Another thought is to save these stories to use as fresh text for your common summative assesment.
