Useful Information In and Out of the Classroom 9/17/10

tools1 Here are some interesting sites that I’ve found this week, thanks to my PLN. As a teacher, I feel we have to keep up to date concerning research in our field and current issues in the education system. I hope some of these inspire you, inform you, and even have you asking questions. Thank you for coming by and visiting!

Books That Heal Kids – great resource for books including reviews

Student Handouts – “100% free teaching materials–lesson plans, worksheets, handouts, games–-everything you can imagine and then some. Everything on our site is instantly accessible and useable. We have materials for every major subject, with our primary focus on secondary education (junior and senior high school, grades 7 through 12).”

PopSci Archives – Popular Science; “We've partnered with Google to offer our entire 137-year archive for free browsing. Each issue appears just as it did at its original time of publication, complete with period advertisements. It's an amazing resource that beautifully encapsulates our ongoing fascination with the future, and science and technology's incredible potential to improve our lives.”

Science Net Links – “Providing a wealth of resources for K-12 science educators, Science NetLinks is your guide to meaningful standards-based Internet experiences for students”
