Our first unit contains the writing process, literary fiction and non-fiction, and media literacy. Here are some of my favorite resources:
My Weblist for Media Literacy - This is a weblist.me I created of Media Literacy resources. My favorites include Living Room Candidate, Old Radio Commercials, Newseum and ProCon.org.
For Literary Nonfiction:
Teaching Channel Comic Books - A great intro to nonfiction.
This article contains many links to non-fiction reads for teens. Also, don't forget about great resources such as CNN Student News , Channel One, Kelly's Article of the Week, and Tween Tribune.
Two Google Docs I stumbled upon via Twitter include resources for freshman and resources for High School Lit. Classes.
Edsitement contains many many resources for fiction.
Three Minute Fiction - I love this resource of short, high interest fictional reads from NPR.
Flash Fiction Online is a great start to many fictional pieces.
Teen Ink is a great site for teens, by teens.
There are also many fictional Twitter accounts to follow. My favorite is VeryShortStory....what a great ice breaker/warm-up for writing.
