Welcome! Choice Literacy is a different kind of professional development resource on the web—an extensive multimedia library for teachers, literacy coaches, and school leaders that grows week by week. Our site includes thousands of high-quality video and print resources from top literacy teachers and authors—all at your fingertips, without taking up an inch of space on your bookshelf.
There are currently over 4,000 professionally edited print resources, professional development guides, and videos available at Choice Literacy, organized by grade, author, and topic. You can get a sense of the range of what we offer in our Free Samples area.
We have 3 main areas of content:
Our Library contains a variety of articles and videos around literacy topics. Four to six new print and video features are added each week making it easy to stay on top of new resources at the site. Members can navigate the library by topic, contributor, grade level, etc.
Our Leaders Lounge is the section of the site developed especially for literacy coaches and school leaders. This is where you’ll find tips and tools for leading professional development sessions, tackling whole school and district change initiatives, and coaching teachers in classrooms. With a library of over 700 print features and 200 videos of demonstration lessons and coaching tips, it is a treasure trove of resources for new and experienced literacy leaders.
Our PD2Go videos include handy workshop guides and related readings for use in professional development settings. All in easy to download formats, with Common Core Standards listed and discussion prompts provided.
Access to these content areas are included in the various membership options we offer.

The Big Fresh is Choice Literacy’s free weekly update of new print resources and videos posted at the site. It’s one of the most popular newsletters in the world for K-12 literacy teachers and school leaders.
