We’re pleased to help our friends at Reading Rockets spread the word about their great new mobile site. But even beyond the great content that the site provides, they’re also offering the chance to win some great prizes, including an iPod Nano. Rachael Walker shares more information on the new mobile website and how to win below:

For more than ten years, Reading Rockets has been spreading the word about research-based reading instruction and offering the latest information on what works in the classroom, in a way that teachers, parents and other who work with children are able to understand and use. Now those same research-based tools and strategies for teaching children how to read and helping those who struggle are available on your mobile phone.

 

You’ll also find daily news headlines about reading, the latest articles and research, recommended reading lists of children’s books, Q&A with literacy experts, and access to Reading Rockets’ extensive video catalog featuring exclusive interviews from award-winning children’s book authors and prominent professionals in the field of teaching reading and writing, as well as video of real-world examples of best instructional practices.
