Resources Shared at MITC
Thanks for your attendance at my session at MITC. As promised, here are the resources that I provided on the CD....(and a few more:)
If you have questions, comments, or need resources for a particular topic, please feel free to email me. I read and respond to all of the emails that I receive and look forward to hearing from you.
Gamequarium is a portal to online, educational, interactive games and learning activities. The term "portal" is synonymous with "doorway." The purpose of Gamequarium is to provide a doorway to the Internet for teachers, parents, and students who are seeking interactive, instructional online resources.
This is a section of Gamequarium devoted to literacy. Find numerous online resources correlated to the National Reading Panel's 5 key areas of reading instruction.
