Teaching/Learning

We’ve listed some of our favorite resources for teaching, learning, classroom management, and more. If you have a resource you want to share, please email us.

Smithsonian Education

The Smithsonian offers thousands of resources for educators, including lesson plans, virtual tours of their latest exhibits, and the opportunity to connect with experts in the field. In one lesson, “Final Farewells,” students can see a school yearbook from the Civil War era up close, and discuss how the political climate may have affected the content.

Promethean Planet

Even if you’ve deemed yourself an interactive whiteboard pro, Promethean’s teacher community offers a boatload of tips and practical advice you’ll find useful. Find help the next time your toolbox goes missing, or if you want to punch up a lesson with cool graphics.
