Do you want students to submit files to you without them using email? Try http://dropitto.me/ Students won't be able to see other student's documents, it's private just to you.
I came across this website when I was looking for more information on College Career and Readiness (CCR) Standards for my portfolio. This guy writes about each ELA standard and explains them in easy terms to understand. This site is www.teachingthecore.com. Go to the "CCR Anchor Standards" tab to start.

But critics say the standards also neglect emerging evidence on cognitive and reading strategies that could guide teachers on how to help students develop those literacy skills.
