Liesl's Blog > Resources
I'll be adding to this list slowly as I discover helpful resources.
Feel free to message me with your favorites.
1. New: MysteryWeekly.com is a great resource for short stories. They deliver a high-quality mystery story to your inbox every Monday. It makes for excellent reading comprehension practice, as the stories are engaging and professionally written. Honestly, it can be hard to find free, quality literature online that's neither dull nor outdated, so Mystery Weekly is a gem.
2. ClassTechTips.com is a blog that features useful new educational apps. It's where I found out about apps that help students manage citations, bring their stories and essays to life in presentations, and access easier versions of required texts.
3. Writing Workshops & Seminars by Stephen Wilbers, Ph.D. is a trove of advice and exercises for developing stronger writing.
1. Vocabulary Worksheet Factory is a simple but powerful tool for creating worksheets to strengthen memorization of terms and definitions. You input your own word list, then create fun customized printables like crosswords and word jumbles. You can also download a set of 100 words and their definitions from Make Your Point to use with this program.
