About Reviews

The word Reviews might not be quite the right word for this small section, but reviews is a small word that fits nicely into a navigation bar. This section is where I will link my articles that are about language arts in some way, mostly about books with themes such as-- how I used a book, how I made lesson plans for a book, and maybe even why I like a book.

Some of the links will take you to another part of this website. You can always find this page again by following the link trail: English >> Reviews
