Choice Literacy Clusters

Note: Choice Literacy is a subscription website, but worth every penny if you are a literacy leader or providing literacy professional development!  There are many free features, including The Big Fresh e-newsletter that arrives every Saturday morning with great ideas -- many free links to check out!  Browse The Big Fresh archives to see what you've been missing!

I love perusing the Choice Literacy website.  It's amazing!  Their adage: "Come for the resources. Stay for the inspiration." You think you are searching out information on one topic and before you know it, you've found 10 more articles or videos on other interesting and inspiring topics!

One component of the Choice Literacy website is the Professional Development Clusters.  As a literacy leader in my school, I'm always looking for new ways to provide PD or information to share.  This is an awesome resource!  Choice Literacy has already "clustered" several articles, videos, and reflection questions for discussion.

Need some inspiration for . . .

  • Better Meetings
  • Moving from Assessment Data to Classroom Practice
  • Rethinking Guided Reading
  • Understanding the Literacy Learning of English Language Learners
  • Writer's Craft Refresh

Take time and enjoy browsing the site!  You'll soon realize my obsession!

  1. I like Choice Literacy too. The articles are very good. It makes me feel good to know that other teachers and coaches have the same concerns and struggles that I do. It is easy for me to lose track of time when I am on the site.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
