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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
