I developed the first version of this site as an enrichment resource for students at my school in St. Louis, Missouri in 2010. It expanded to a larger site with more book recommendations, book quizzes, math word problems, and writing prompts, and was redesigned in 2018. My goal is to continue to build a useful resource that encourages people of all ages to read widely and often, and to provoke discussions about texts, in addition to discussions about teaching, learning, and ideas. I hope this site will encourage parents, teachers, and students to invest in the power of literacy, conversation, and student-centered learning. Thank you for visiting!
