Classroom Ideas: ReadWriteThink's Calendar!
ReadWriteThink is one of the websites I refer to regularly for classroom ideas, and I just discovered an interesting tool they've developed. The Calendar Activities section catalogs lessons and teaching ideas which are thematically related to events in literary history. In February we could celebrate the work of Alice Walker, use Valentine's Day as a reason to explore poetic devices in writing, or analyze the power of a free and impartial press.
