Subsequently, the Editorial Board and Review Board voted on these 10 finalists, whittling down the top ten nominations to a list of six webtexts for 2013.

Vote on this award before 1/31/14.

Even if you don’t vote, you might want to check out the nominees for your own classroom use . . . or for your own professional learning!

      Thank you for the wonderful comment!
