Teacher Resources: Lesson Plans, Support and More

The Internet can be a good source of teaching resources and support. In this section you’ll find a few sites to help you with lesson plans and classroom activities, as well as online communities just for educators where you can share ideas and resources with other teachers.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Each state has its own Department of Education, and your state’s DOE Web site is perhaps the most valuable resource a teacher can use: most have state standards as well as online tools and lists of useful Web sites for teachers. The National Center for Education Statistics has a list of state education agencies for each U.S. state.
  • If you use a search engine to look for facts or data to present in a lesson, use one that searches only credible sites or databases. Generic search engines give you millions of results of varying credibility and relevance. Instead try Google Scholar, Infoplease, HighWire Press from the Stanford University Libraries or Galaxy of Knowledge from the Smithsonian Institution Libraries.
