Two Hot Resources

By sending you over to Literacy is Priceless, I’m hooking you up with two hot resources. First of all, that blog itself. Lots of web and tech resources for bringing literacy into the 21st Century.

Second is the topic of that post, which is the Shmoopwebsite. Shmoop is a fabulous collection of resources in the areas of literature, history, and poetry. I love free stuff! Everyone knows that about me. But at this site I especially appreciate thshmoope section of each resource called “Why Should I Care?” Next to free stuff, I love relevance! “Why should we care about this stuff?” is the grunted (yet valid) motto of every middle and high school student, and these well-written and funny selections answer that question (check out the Why Should I Care? for 1984).

Plan to spend some time there.
