Each month Marjan Glavac, professional speaker, teacher and author of The Busy Educator's Guide To The World Wide Web 2ND EDITION (Foreword by Dr. Harry Wong author of The First Days Of School) presents The Busy Educator's Monthly Five -- five websites for educators that are easy to read, simple to use and worthwhile to know.
Lesson Planning Sites Part 6
Here are five websites to help Busy Educators with their lesson planning.
Chicago Public Schools Instructional Intranet
This website contains detailed daily lesson plans for grades K-12 for Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Music and Art which can be downloaded in PDF format.
Kathy Schrock's Guide for Educators
Well known Internet education expert Kathy Schrock, maintains and updates this well organized list of sites daily. The sites here can be used to add to your lesson planning and professional development. Sign up for the Sites of the School Days (S.O.S.) e-mail list and receive a new site from mid-August to June.
Kia Ora, Welcome to this searchable database of 5,000 reviewed websites sorted into curriculum areas from New Zealand. To get included in this database, sites must meet 23 quality criteria regarding layout, language level, content and educational approach. Each site receives a content rating out of 5 (5+ being the highest rating) and a presentation rating out of 5. There is also an age rating for each site. Ratings are well annotated and well written.
Teachers.net Lesson Bank
Over 1,500 teacher-submitted lesson plans are available here in a searchable collection for use with students in preschool through secondary school. Sorted by grade level and curriculum categories, the collection easily allows teachers to find the information they need about lessons and activities. And if you can't find a lesson, just submit it to the Lesson Plan Request Board. This is a great place not only to find resources, but to share your own.
Complete lesson plans with detailed objectives, standards, learning outcomes, material list, links to rubrics, sample activities and more can be found and accessed here. This site gives a number of options for viewing the materials. Click on the Site Map and choose from Core Curriculum Online to view course descriptions of all available courses; or click on the Query Lesson Plans link to access a searchable curriculum database for lesson plans.
