From the folks at New York-based educational software company Merit Software, “TopTeaching Resources.com” aims to create a place online where busy teachers can turn for access to a wealth of technology-based learning materials, including a database of available grants, funding, discounted teaching supplies, free lesson plans, reference manuals, and dictionaries–plus, links to the latest educational news, web sites, and information pertaining to educational software. Whether you’re teaching English, math, reading, or science, the web site boasts a searchable database of lesson plans and classroom activities organized by grade level–from elementary teaching aids to high school lesson plans. There is also a separate library of supplementary materials and interventions aligned with state standards, including resources for teaching English as a second language and other traditionally hard-to-reach students. But that’s not all. Short on provisions for your school or classroom? The site also maintains a list of links to various school supply web sites, so teachers can keep their supply closets stocked–and their kids learning.
