Whether we are classroom teachers, teacher leaders and/or professional
developers, all effective educators require professional resources
to remain informed. Take advantage of those that are completely
free. I receive a number of on-line resources that help me stay
up to date.
The Master Teacher
I have subscribed to The Master Teacher for a number of years.
Initially I received their pamphlets in the mail. Once a month I
received four pamphlets that took me all of ten minutes to read.
The topics were relevant, practical and timely. A few years ago,
I found out about their on-line service, which provides the same
information for the regular education teacher and the ESL teacher
as well. You will receive tips and strategies on classroom management,
building relationships, teaching strategies, and a great deal more.
John C. Maxwell is the writer of the Leadership Wired service,
a free on-
line service that addresses issues of leadership. I have subscribed
to the service for a several years and it has helped me gain deeper
insight into the complexities of leadership. It offers inspirational
quotes, tips and advice.
A friend of mine shared this site with me. You will find lesson
plans for all subject areas, units, rubrics, and other freebies
for teachers. Visit the site, you will be pleased you did.
The Responsive Classroom
I learned about this site while surfing the Internet, now, they
send me newsletters in the mail. It is a very informative site that
addresses issues of child development and good teaching practice.
It is well worth your time.
What a fun site it is! You can find gifts for your colleagues at
reasonable prices. If you are looking for keepsakes, desk accessories,
shirts, mugs or frames, this is the site. Surprise or encourage
a colleague with a personalized gift.
Try one, two or all and let me know what your think. I would love
to know which of these sites you find most helpful.
