Other ways to partcipate:
Rate an activity
After teaching a lesson from FreeReading, share your feedback with other members of the FreeReading community by clicking the stars on the upper right-hand corner of the lesson. FreeReading uses a five star rating system (five stars = fantastic lesson). The left-most star is a 1/5 rating and the right-most star is a 5/5. When you click the stars, the website will collect your input and the next time you visit the page, your rating will be averaged into the general rating for the lesson.
