    Current events are published monthly. The site includes a story of the event, a word game (usually a printable worksheet), a short quiz, and a forum for students to respond to the event.

    Students can use the Bio-Cube to summarize a person's life after reading or before writing a biography or autobiography. If students create these bio-cubes on the lives of famous Americans, it would welcome the comparison of historical figures.
  • The Omnivore's Dilemma: Close Reading of a Non-Fiction Text
    In this Teaching Channel video you will learn a variety of ways to help readers interact with non-fiction, especially as they learn to annotate the text in order to hold and concentrate their understanding.
