I am part of a group of nonfiction authors who have written short (400 words) articles that are available for FREE! But amazing text is not all . . . each entry includes the authors reading their text. This allows struggling readers to listen and read along at the same time.

What teachers are saying about Carla Killough McClafferty's CLOSE READING workshop:


"Ms. McClafferty's expertise, knowledge, and professional ability to communicate how teachers can approach non-fiction under the CCSS is clearly what is needed for ALL teachers of core subjects-not just ELA teachers."

"In the over seven hundred professional development hours I have personally logged, I can comfortably and confidently say I have walked away with a veritable 'gold mine' of useful information and tools by which my students will benefit."
