The Skill Library helps teachers confidently teach reading, speaking, and writing skills across all subject areas. The skills in this section are student-centered and model inquiry based thinking.
LiteracyTA empowers teachers with a simple process for reading, speaking, and writing and supports each process with teacher guides, lesson planning tools, student lessons, and practical student handouts.

Reading is tough. Speaking and writing about texts is even tougher. We are here to help.
