    I am student teaching in a special ed. classroom. There are 7 students of varying ability levels. Are there any websites that could be a good resource? I'm looking for 30 min or less simple lessons for all subjects.

    Any help?

    For reading/writing lessons, I like readwritethink - You can differentiate lessons you find there.

    For math & science, when I was student teaching, I would base it loosely off of their text, and find resources online for inspiration for how to develop a smartboard lesson

    Teachers Pay Teachers is always great to browse, because it's categorized by subject, grade and you can even search with keywords. You can find lots of plans for free, or for a couple of dollars.

    Normally I google search [topic] lesson plan [grade level], for example 'high school English death penalty lesson plan'. Then I see a lot of websites come up with lesson plans, a lot are free, some you have to join, but in the process I find some with many other plans so next time I don't have to search.

    Keep in mind any resource:book, website, worksheet, should complement and supplement your lesson plan, not BE your plan. Adjust, modify, use bits and parts of anything you find..adapt, don't adopt. You know your kids. There is no one size fits all resource.

    Sharemylesson.com is another.

    Unlike TpT it, like betterlesson, is supported by teachers who actually want to help each other.

    No help from your CT? That's usually the first line of defense.

    www.tes.co.uk

    Has hundreds of thousands of downloadable resources for all ages and abilities in all subjects. All resources created by teachers and shared free of charge.

    Also a free to join teachers' forum where you can ask for ideas and share experiences.

    ^ is awesome. It is the UK version of Sharemylesson that I mentioned above. There is some overlap but I often end up checking both. The plus side is you only have to register for one of them and the login will work for both.

    I think sharemylesson may be the US equivelent of TES! I think TES has been around longer and may even have set up SML

    I just found some lessons on that site by accident. I think they're partners.

    I apologize for my subtle Amero-centrism, you are correct. TES is the original, Sharemylesson is but a collection of rebellious colonies! :)

    In any case, I use both frequently. While they have some overlap there is enough unique on each to check them both.
