More sites for a lesson plan in a hurry.

Readworks.org is committed to improving student literacy one step at a time. They have lexile labeled text sets with thought provoking questions. The site is free, registration required.

Newsela.com has a daily lesson plan tied to the news. Each article comes in three versions, meeting the needs of all students.

The Learning Blog of the NY Times has a new look. It is now called The Learning Network. An article a day is published specifically geared to teens, again with questions and very often a video. There are separate sections for each subject area, as well as daily puzzles and weekly challenges and contests.

Would like faculty suggestions
