ReadWorks gives teachers the research-proven tools and support they need to improve the academic achievement of their students. ReadWorks provides research-based units, lessons, and authentic, leveled non-fiction and literary passages directly to educators online, for free, to be shared broadly. The ReadWorks curriculum is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and the standards of all 50 states. Most importantly, ReadWorks is faithful to the most effective research-proven instructional practices in reading comprehension.
This website includes strategies, tools, and texts to bring beginning readers and struggling readers to high levels of literacy. Although many of the strategies and tools are geared toward elementary teachers, there are some great resources for teaching vocabulary through morphological awareness.
Develop a deeper understanding of the Common Core State Standards by learning from student work on performance tasks. WestEd provides real student work from Smarter Balanced performance tasks, scores and annotations by practicing educators, and tools and videos to support professional learning.ELA
