Read it Again, Set ONE is a web based collection of 25 children's stories that can easily be personalized to teach young children.
These stories can be helpful for young children who are developing typically as well as for children with autism, a speech/language delay, or any type of delay or disability. A Social Story™ is a concept developed by Carol Gray to improve the social skills of an individual with autism. It is a proven method that uses short stories or narratives written in first person to help him or her understand why and how to behave appropriately in social situations. The Read It Again Set ONE stories use that same concept, but expands the stories to make them more like children’s picture books.

We are launching an antibullying application called Bully Tag on August 6, 2012 with commercial launch date Spetember 10, 2012. This is a free application available on the App Store and on Android aimed at empowering students to report bullying incidents and get rewarded for reporting incidents that are otherwise ignored. Notifications of bully incident reports are provided to specific persons of authority to aid in decision making. If your interested in learning more please sign up on our landing page or send me an email and I will provide additional details. This is not another online reporting tool. This is a mobile application combined with state of the art reporting and notification technology.

BullyTag tells, so you don't have to.bullytag.com

BullyTag is a free, mobile anti-bullying application, which empowers those who are most likely to experience bullying and help prevent bullying - the students themselves.


The CyberBully Hotline is pleased to announce that it will be awarding up to $100,000 in grant money during the 2012-13 school year. The program is designed to target schools and districts that are affected by high-poverty or low-income conditions where regular school funding might not readily support the implementation of an anonymous bullying reporting program. The goal of this program is to introduce a pilot implementation of the CyberBully Hotline to help reduce and prevent bullying and cyberbullying episodes at financially deserving institutions under a no-cost or reduced-cost program. Due Date: All applications must be received by October 31, 2012 in order to be considered for implementation during the 2012-13 school year. CLICK HERE

Then it guides the instructor through composing higher order thinking tasks and offers a number of graphic organizers.It saves a lot of time and makes it much easier to offer really comprehensive reading support. Teachers all over the world have been making lessons about the Olympics every day. Imagine that: you watch an event, go on the web and find an article about it, and in a few minutes are delivering it to students in class.There's an 83-second video on http://LessonWriter.com
