60 Second Recap

We want to help teens (yes, teens of all ages!) engage with literature. We want to help them see it not as some chore to be endured, but as -- dare we say it? -- the gift of a lifetime. How? Through the language of our time -- the language of video. Video that's focused, engaging, informative ... and short enough to hold just about anyone's attention. With the 60second Recap, teens finally have an alternative to the boring, text-based study guides that have burdened them for generations. And -- who knows? -- maybe that's just what they'll need to begin a love affair with literature, one that will last a lifetime.

Starfall (Target: Elementary)
(Elementary) "I haven't shown this web site to a primary teacher that hasn't continued using it in some capacity. The site is simple to navigate and is aimed at the primary set--a group that is often neglected when it comes to web sites. Introduction and reinforcement of letter sounds, beginning reader activities, calendar activities and just about every holiday is covered at this web site." --Renee Kopf & Pam Krambeck, NETA News (February 2007)

Wordle

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

Writing Fix
"A self-proclaimed 'One of a kind site aimed at sparking the imagination of writers, teachers and students.' I love the interactive writing prompt area at the bottom of the home page. Along the left side of the page you will find writing prompts aimed at the six traits of writing and word games to spark imagination for writing. This is a site that teachers keep going back to (and they often take their students along for the ride) again and again." --Renee Kopf & Pam Krambeck, NETA News (February 2007)

-------------------------


The Writing Fix Focus on 6-Trait Writing
"We mentioned 'Writing Fix' before when spotlighting sites for language arts but if you dig a bit deeper in the site you will find the link we have above that deals specifically with the 6-Trait Writing Process. As one teacher told us, you can't create a list of great writing sites without including 'Writing Fix!" Primary teachers have found the link to literature prompts helpful when lesson planning for writing. The 'revision Post-Its' that are included for each trait are great. One of the teachers we spoke with used these as inspiration to create her own prompts using the drawing tools in MS Word." --Renee Kopf & Pam Krambeck, NETA News (September 2007)
