When I attended an ELA meeting last week, one of the other participants made us aware of a great online resource: NetTrekker. It is an interface with hundreds of pre-screened and categorized websites on numerous topics from grammar to digital storytelling and more.

Check out the press release and then the tool by signing up through Michigan’s Learnport website.

Good luck trekking and let me know if you think it is a good resource.
