The first is R9 ED Stop. We have been compiling wonderful educational websites that we have sorted for you by subject and grade level. This might help you find just what you are looking for without having to spend a lot of time doing the research yourself.
The second is The Top 200 Education Blogs. Sue Kluthe from Hondo Middle School shared this site with us. The site is set up for educators and students. StudentGuide.org has assembled a collection of useful resources for both students and teachers to assist in their scholastic goals. They provide articles on hundreds of student related topics to help them improve their study habits, writing skills, organizational skills, and analytical skills. You will find a link to this site on the R9 Ed Stop website as well under the "Cool Stuff" link.
If you know of a great website that our teachers need to know about, please email Ellen Virden and she will add it to R9 Ed Stop!

Runners: Go above and beyond for the betterment of the organization. They carry the load of the bus and are the strongest members of the team. At times, Runners sacrifice their own personal lives for the organization.
Joggers: Pour energy into tasks where they are most skilled but will coast through others. Joggers often focus on one "big" project for the year and want recognition for their effort. Joggers have a stronger balance of work and personal life.
Walkers: Do not contribute to the forward momentum of the organization. Walkers have a negative impact on the team and are continually seeking and recruiting members to become one of them as they believe in strength in numbers. They are focused primarily on themselves and their situation.
Riders: Considered the dead weight in the organization. As Mr. Clark states, "they contribute next to nothing to the organization... and what's worse they feel they are 100% entitled to their seat." Unfortunately, riders do just enough to not be terminated.
Driver: Head of the organization; responsible for steering the bus and its' riders forward.
First and foremost, Mr. Clark brings the different personalities to life using a mixture of humor and at times brutal honesty. The first part of the book focuses on identifying the members on the bus and then provides specific strategies the driver can use to reach their potential. The second part of the book outlines how to accelerate the organization with habits and behaviors many Runners have in common. Punctuality, dress for success, positive interactions, ability to accept criticism are several of the keys to success he describes. The final part of the book outlines strategies for the driver to become a more effective leader. The driver is provided once again with specifics to move members forward as well as setting expectations, dealing with conflict, and the importance of showing appreciation.
Move Your Bus provides the reader as either the driver or rider on the bus opportunity for self-reflection as well as strategies to grow.

2. Encourage them to consider text structure. Once students understand the text on a literal level, you want to ask questions that will encourage them to think about structure. What techniques is the author using to communicate his or her point? These may include: vocabulary,literary devices, narration, genre and the like. Questions in this phase should help students understand the internal structure of the text.
