Hello, I'm researching a story for Edutopia magazine on Web sites that offer the best free lesson plans and educational materials. I'm looking for your further suggestions or if you can say "ay ay" to any on the list. I'm also interested in your comments about why you like to sites. My draft list so far: Learn NC: K-12 Teaching and Learning from the UNC School of Education http://www.learnnc.org/ Thinkfinity- Free lesson plans and educational resources. http://www.thinkfinity.org/home.aspx Hotchalk - Lessons Plan Page http://www.lessonplanspage.com/# Teachnology http://www.teach-nology.com/ Education World http://www.educationworld.com/ FREE - Federal Resources for Educational Excellence http://www.free.ed.gov/index.cfm Read*Write*Think (NCTE) http://www.readwritethink.org/ Illuminations - Resources for Teaching Math http://illuminations.nctm.org/ Teachers Domain - Digital Media for the Classroom http://www.teachersdomain.org/ Curriki http://www.curriki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/WebHome PBS.org http://www.pbs.org/teachers/ Thinkfinity http://www.thinkfinity.org/home.aspx There's also a discussion on this in our Readers' Survey 2008: http://www.edutopia.org/best-site-download-free-lessons-2008 What do you use? Please let me know. My deadline for an initial draft of the list is Thursday, December 17. I'll be working on the story into early January. I'm looking forward to your thoughts! Thanks, Malaika

I recently came across the site above. What impressed me about this site is that it has its worksheets/activities which may come from other sites, arranged per subject matter/ grade and correlated to the education standard it satisfies. I use hundreds of other sites. I also use Core Knowledge lessons plans available free online, and BBC.

I really like Rubistar http://rubistar.4teachers.org/ for creating rubrics. They have templates you can use as is or alter to suit your needs. You can also create one from scratch. There's an option to save them on the website - which I always do. It even has a section where you can track how students do on each section to see where the class strengths and weaknesses are.

Here's another one: http://www.scribd.com/doc/55697/501-Writing-Prompts I was looking for writing prompts for middle school level and came across this site. There are literally 501 Writing Prompts! They are broken down into different writing areas (persuasive, expository, narrative), have rubrics and model essays. You can print the 181 pages (if you have the time and ink!) but I haven't found a way to download the document.
