The resources mentioned above are one of the best resources I've read so far. If you are looking for valuable resources then the list above is the place to go to. I plan on using this resources on an essay I'm writing <a href=””>bestessays uk</a> about these topics. I would totally recommend my friends to come and check this out. This would totally save a lot of their time. A great list for a great start! Thanks a lot.
I plan on using this resource in the place of the traditional book report. I&#39;ll get better insight on my student&#39;s perspective while reading.

This resource is very helpful for getting students to direct their own learning.

This resource is great for any reading done outside of class, providing the teacher with quick proof that students have read the book as opposed to a summary and making students think about their reading without filling out a simple study guide or needing prompts from the teacher. It is also more conducive to differentiation.
