      There is so much information on this site that it is difficult to browse for lessons/curriculums etc. I would recommend knowing what you want before you start a search.

      I think being able to browse and search by Standards is really neat on this website. However, I found that not all states' standards were included in this function.

    This website has many resources for teachers that range from curriculums, to lesson plans, to videos. It is free to become a member and many of the teaching resources are aligned with state and national standards.

Concepts to Classroom: Course Menu - 4 views

  •  
    Concept to Classroom is a website sponsored by the Educational Broadcasting Corporation. It is an interactive site desinged for educatotors and provides online workshops featuring a variety of teaching strategies such as cooperative learning, inquiry based learing and teaching to multiple intelligences. Other categories include workshops on constructivism, assessment, curriculum design, and using the internet in the classroom. Clicking on any of these categories, directs one to information about that topic. For example, the inquiry based learning filter will provide a description of the teaching method, benefits for using the method, criticisms of the method, and finally lesson plans using that particular method.
    In the multiple intelligences section, there is a series of five lesson plans on world religions I may adapt for a 7th grade class.
    Check it out…it is a great resource for ideas and lesson plans.

Socratic Seminars - 5 views

  •  
    This link is a part of a school district website in the state of New York. I found it while searching for information on Socratic seminars. It is really great because it provides all the information one needs to learn about teaching the dialogue method. Informational filters include an overview, elements of a Socratic seminar, frequently asked questions by teachers and students, dialogue and behavior guidelines for using this dialogue method and suggestions for the types of readings or materials that work best with this method.
    If you like the idea of using the Socratic method in your classroom, you will want to visit this site.

      So there are usually Daily Lesson Plans but apparently they are revamping the site so these are temporarily on hiatus. However you CAN access the over 2,000 lesson plans (in the "Lesson Plan Archive" below) they have on the site. I did a search for 9-12 grade economics lessons and hit paydirt. I <3 NY Times.

      The site says that the "News Snapshot" is for younger kids BUT it might be a great way to gather background information on a picture and gives you all the information to give students contexts about current events.

      Wasn't someone saying that their students demanded that this be on the board every day. Well here's a one stop shop to find information about what happened today (historically speaking of course).

      SERIOUSLY!?!?!? The New York TImes makes themed historical crossword puzzles!?!?!

      So many to choose from. I'm not sure how helpful this will actually be to students. It may be neat if they could play it online and google search for answers. Might be a cool way to learn even more information on events we cover in class. It would be important to not just make this busy work (why I had word finds).

      Daily headlines with one sentence summaries. Short and Sweet.
      Could be easily followed with "Daily News Quiz" (below).

      You can't escape standardized tests.
      The NY Times offers a test question of the day sponsored by Kaplan. They also explain the answers.
