ELA Update - February/March 2014
Welcome English Educators,
In an ongoing attempt to share information and research that crosses my desk with Missouri’s educators, I have added a number of new resources. Please share this far and wide with educators you know. Remember, resources from previous months have been moved to the “ELA Resources” link on the right.
As we move into the spring, if you’re looking for assessment resources (grade-level and EOC), you’ll find them on the right.
Additionally, there will be a new webinar on academic vocabulary coming to both the Missouri Learning Standards website and this page. Look for that in the next couple of weeks.
As always, if there is ever anything I can do to better support your work in the classroom, let me know.
