SOL Domains Materials UPDATE

I updated the materials on my Teaching the Virginia SOL Domains page. The links haven’t been working for a while now, and my materials were a mess since my flash drive broke a few years ago, so it has taken a while.

Honestly, the only reason I’ve put it at the top of my list is that my department chair asked me to share it with the middle school teachers in our district to make sure we’re aligning our writing instruction. (Thanks, Ann!)

Maybe more to come!
