Literacy from the Sunshine State

When I have a question about literacy research, the Florida Center for Reading Research is one of the first sites I consult to find the latest research. Recently, I noticed that it has a great repository of literacy lessons for classroom teachers as well. For example, check out the student center activities on the FCRR Curriculum and Instruction page. There are tons of lessons on comprehension, fluency and more! -Anna
