Improving Literacy

Improving the Literacy ability of all students has been a priority in my own teaching for a number of years. I use data to help me to decide how to best meet the needs of my students. Over the years this has led to the creation of several resources that I use time and time again – because they work! These include Super Six Reading Strategies, P.E.E.L  and T.X.X.X.C. Paragraph Writing, as well as the use of other Writing Strategies. I know that these resources will work for your students too, so be sure to check them out at my store.
