http://www.literacy.uconn.edu/
The Literacy Web is designed to promote the use of the Internet as a tool to assist classroom teachers in their search for best practices in literacy instruction, including the new literacies of Internet technologies. We've included sections for professional development in the areas of literacy and technology integration to encourage teachers to use this website during their own inservice trainings and we've provided links to recommended websites for students as well.  Visit the Literacy Web at the address above.
