  3. 3. This website is completely devoted to helping raise food for the World Hunger Program .<br />It tests you on your English vocabulary and for every ten answers you get right, you donate 10 grains of rice to the World Hunger Program.<br />According to the website in the “About” section, there are two main goals for this non-profit organization. <br />First, “to provide an education to everyone for free.”<br />Second, “to help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.”<br />They also stated “Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your education can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.”<br />Free rice<br />
  4. 4. They also have added other subjects to the site. When I first used this website it was only dedicated to English vocabulary, and since they have added Math, Chemistry, Art, Geography and Language Learning.<br />Free Rice began in October of 2007.<br />Since they have began this site they have donated more than 90, 732, 100, 880 grains of rice to the World Hunger Program and this is all because people get on to help educate themselves and do it for a good cause. <br />You are also to form a group with other people to help raise more rice for the program. <br />The website is<br />Free Rice<br />
  5. 5. I have always wanted to find something that I can help educate myself and find a way to do good for others, this is the perfect site for that.<br />I did not realize that they offered other subjects until recently. I think that it is such a good idea to have other subjects that are on there.<br />This would be a great tool to use in the classroom to help students study for an English grammar and English vocabulary. <br />I think it is also important that students realize that while they are learning they are donating food to a good cause. <br />Free Rice reflection<br />
  6. 6. Read Write Think’s mission statement is “Here at ReadWriteThink, our mission is to provide educators, parents, and afterschool professionals with access to the highest quality practices in reading and language arts instruction by offering the very best in free materials”<br />The content on ReadWriteThink is created by a diverse group of educators who share a passion for literacy learning.<br />Lesson plans on ReadWriteThink are also aligned to individual state standards, courtesy of a collaborative project between Verizon Thinkfinity and Syracuse University's Center for Natural Language Processing. These alignments are revised on a regular basis as new or updated standards become available.<br />Read write think<br />
  7. 7. There are teacher resources from grades K-12<br />This site offers Classroom resources and after school resources for parents who want to help there student study<br />Verizon Wireless is a big supporter of the Read Write Think program<br />Theresa Grimsley a Language Arts teacher from Kentucky said this about the website “ is an invaluable resource to help me stay up-to-date on new strategies and helps me create interesting and challenging classroom activities.”<br />All of the content on ReadWriteThink is reviewed and approved by literacy experts<br />The website is<br />Read Write think<br />
  8. 8. I think this is one of the most helpful tools that parents and teachers can use to help the students be the best that they can be.<br />This site has up-to-date information for every grade level and are up to state standards for education. <br />I love the fact that they have additional resources for after school, so if your child is struggling in a certain subject you are able to help them on your own.<br />Read write think reflection<br />
  9. 9. This website was created by Paul Brians, Emeritus Professor of English, at Washington State University<br />It has roughly 13 million viewers since it first began in 1997<br />On the website he states “The concept of language errors is a fuzzy one. I'll leave to linguists the technical definitions. Here we're concerned only with deviations from the standard use of English as judged by sophisticated users such as professional writers, editors, teachers, and literate executives and personnel officers. The aim of this site is to help you avoid low grades, lost employment opportunities, lost business, and titters of amusement at the way you write or speak. <br />Common errors in English usage<br />
  10. 10. The author of the site allows people to ask questions in which he posts a response to directly on the site. <br />An example of one the questions he answered is:<br />What gives you the right to say what an error in English is?<br />I could take the easy way out and say I'm a professor of English and do this sort of thing for a living. True, but my Ph.D. is in comparative literature, not composition or linguistics, and I teach courses in the history of ideas rather than language as such. But I admire good writing and try to encourage it in my students. <br />The website is:<br />Common errors in English usage<br />
  11. 11. I feel that this is a very important site for everyone to look at. I am an English major and still make silly mistakes but after looking at this site it helped me understand the common mistakes.<br />It is also good to double check yourself if you feel that you are making a mistake there is now a resource that will either confirm that you are making a mistake or not.<br />The site is run by an English Professor, so you can be assured that the information you are receiving is legitimate.<br />Common errors in English usage reflection<br />
  12. 12. Overall, I have found many resources that will be very useful to any student who either wants to further educate themselves in the English language or help them perform better in that subject area.<br />Free Rice you are educating yourself while helping donate grains of rice to the World Hunger Program which is an amazing cause.<br />Conclusion<br />
