Bedford Reader Exercise Central

This is the place to practice your writing and grammar skills.  From time to time I'll assign pieces of this -- it's also a fun way to spend your free time (really!).





To save time (and typing) I will refer to the Common Core Standards by number in my weekly blogs.  For those of you who are interested, here are the descriptors of each number, divided by 9-10 standards and 11-12 standards.  You will note that many of our weekly units will cover multiple standards, as I strive to integrate reading, writing, and speech.

Please contact me if you ever have questions about the Common Core; if I don't know the answer, I'll find out.
