Day 26: Favorite Sites

What are my three favorite go-to sites for teaching resources?  I could never limit it to three, so let’s just say these three are among my favorite sites for resources.

  1. Twitter.  I have written about this before, but Twitter is now the first place I check for teaching resources.  I am still working on figuring out how to best organize what I find, but I am never disappointed when I check Twitter, only overwhelmed.  I am not a veteran on Twitter.  I had heard about its value for developing a professional learning network for years and only got started in the past nine months.  
  2. LiveBinders.  This site has a wealth of resources that are already organized.  I can access binders about many different topics and use them to build my own binders.  As with Twitter, I am fairly new at this, but from what I’ve seen so far, LiveBinders can be of great value when it comes to finding resources.
  3. Achieve the Core.  This site has a wealth of high-quality resources for teaching to the Common Core.  There are detailed close reading lessons, assessments, short stories and more, all organized by grade level.  I find myself checking this site from time to time for specific lessons around the Common Core.
