Better Lesson

No matter how long we've been teaching, we can all use an infusion of ideas, ingenuity, and inspiration when it comes to lesson plans.  I've been a part of this school district's Just In Time sessions, and it seems to me that what teachers request most from these sessions is more lesson plan ideas.  With this in mind, I came across a mention in the May 2013 Phi Delta Kappan for Better LessonBetter Lesson is "focused on aggregating and scaling the most innovative content and practices from high-performing teachers across the country."

This is a website where exemplary teachers create aligned courses, units, and lessons.  Choose by grade level, by subject, and topic within the subject, and be assured that all follow Common-Core standards.  This is also a place where teachers can find resources, but also share, plan, and have the opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback.

Choose by subject or by grade level.

The best part?  It's free.
