How many times have you heard of or learned about a really cool website, only to promptly forget the name of it? I know it has happened to me too many times to count, which is why I started to create a list of them. And here it is, the big list of free online resources for secondary English Language Arts teachers.
How many times have you heard of or learned about a really cool website, only to promptly forget the name of it? I know it has happened to me too many times to count, which is why I started to create a list of them. And here it is, the big list of free online resources for secondary English Language Arts teachers.

Some of the sites are completely free, while others have some paid resources or premium versions that require a subscription. I've categorized the websites to make sorting through them easier. If there are any I missed, feel free to leave a comment and I'll add it to the list.
