All Reading Worksheets I spent much of my time as an educator creating materials to effectively target essential reading skills. I spent many more years compiling and posting these materials to this website. Here is a list of all the worksheet pages on this website.

Being a teacher is one of the hardest jobs in the world, but it is also one of the most necessary. I hope that these materials help make your job a little bit easier and allow you to give more of your limited time and attention to your students.

The Information Maps area of WikIT is intended to be a useful resource to the mind-mapping world. If you disagree with the terminology, please confine discussion about which maps are best, whether "mind maps" should be used to describe only Buzan-style mind maps, and similar concerns here: the discussion tab of the Map wars page. Where the specific features of concept maps are under discussion they are not called mind maps.
