What Vickie Burkins says about Awesome Stories:

I really enjoy getting my students involved in the different aspects of Awesome Stories.  I have found that it really engages the students in discussions. I believe in Awesome Stories because I have watched my students get really interested in reading non-fiction literature.  The website is going to be a tremendous help for teachers using Common Core standards with activities for all students.
