Some ideas and sites to help  with reading and writing at

IEP4U.COM has over 4000  Goals and Objectives (IEP-ITP) each with changeable benchmarks. The Idea Statements are spread out over seven subjects (Domains) an... Teachers, parents and students can now access objectives directly from this Web Site. Input key words, phrases, or test names in the search engine to find just the correct objectives for your students needs. Copy and paste any information you want, then modify the objectives (examples) to exactly describe the needs of your students. The kid section will give your students personal input to write their own objectives (with your help) and to play some interesting games as well.

This information is is designed to help you with the daunting task of writing proper IEP's  The data within this web site was written to correlate with the unique characteristics of various formal assessments. Since assessment is essential for the development of the IEP, specific questions were evaluated and idea statements written based upon those questions. Searching the data for idea statements by assessment will enable teachers to plan lessons or web quests based upon how the student scored on the assessment.

Students can pick their own IEP using Pictures!

Hi Greg,

The next novel my students are reading is To Kill a Mockingbird and I've been thinking about using glogster with them - having the students do some individual or partner research on Jim Crow and the Great Depression or explore aspects of the novel and then set up their pages.

Generally, I use a discussion forum for student responses to literature and as a venue for the students' own writing. I use Fusetalk, but some of my colleagues use Moodle for the same purpose.

Hi Greg,

Consider asking students to respond to questions about the literature via Twitter. (Here's just one example of such a unit."

You could also have students develop their own Google Earth layers based on stories they read in literature.

I'm looking for some new ideas to keep students interested in their reading through the use of technology. One idea I have is to have students create myspace pages for characters from novels and share them with the class. What else can you think of that might be interesting?
