Teachers Union Unveils Instructional-Resources Website
We've written in this blog and in EdWeek about teachers' often frustrating search for instructional materials that reflect the common standards. There is more and more stuff out there, of course, but finding it and figuring out how good it is are big challenges. In that light, it's interesting to note that the American Federation of Teachers has unveiled a new website that offers lesson plans and other curricular resources.
My colleague Stephen Sawchuk has the details for you over at Teacher Beat.
The website, "Share My Lesson," is being populated by teachers, who are uploading materials they think might be of use to their colleagues. Teachers can contribute to the site, rate the materials already on it, and download anything they like for free.
