Language Arts Teacher Resources

Whether you're new to the profession or you're a seasoned veteran, our treasure trove of lesson and unit plans, activities and projects, and thoughtful articles offer valuable suggestions for what to teach and how to teach it in a language arts class.

Students can warm up with daily practice exercises or a collection of resources that support Common Core Speaking and Listening Standards for 8th graders. Decorate your third grade classroom with posters illustrating each standard you will approach. Incorporate more technology into your curricula and prepare learners for the professional world while addressing literacy standards with these suggested activities.

Our resources are designed for and reviewed by teachers. If only there was a homework machine that would assign, give feedback on essays, and record all that work!
