Top 2011 Language Arts Websites
Are you an Language Arts teacher and looking for free resources to suppliment your classroom curriculum? Look no further than the list put together by Richard Byrne of Free Technology for Teachers, in an article titled "11 Language Arts Resources".
Teaching Language Arts consists of teaching a very wide assortment of skills, including improving a students vocabulary, helping students understand how to craft together the written word, and also how to inspire creative ideas.
The online resources listed by Byrne in this article can help with all of those tasks.
For example, a< href="http://www.idiomdictionary.com/">IdiomDoctionary.com is a website that can help students to understand and appreciate the sometimes difficult-to-comprehend concept of idioms. BooksShouldBeFree.com
is a listed site where students and teachers can obtain free audio books covering a wide range of topics and interests.
Byrnes even lists creative uses of sites like Google Docs or the Bubbl.us
mind mapping website for creating a storyline from scratch.
A few other sites covered in this article include the online dictionaries Wordia and Visuwords, the adolescent literature website AdLit.org, and the very useful website 60 Second Recap where students or teachers can review sixty second book summaries in video format - a great way for teachers to select books that they may want to cover as part of the Language Arts curriculum.
Take a look at Richard Byrne's full list
at his site, and select some of his listed resources to boost your Language Arts curriculum.
