Hi everyone, As I sit at my home office desk, I am pouring through the teacher editions for each subject. But....I feel like I'm reinventing the wheel. While the teacher sidebars have the ideas for what needs to be covered, I want to bring life to the subject. So, I was wondering if other teachers felt the same way. I have noticed teachers share their classroom pictures, their advice on various subjects (like discipline, rewards, etc., etc,), and recommendations for help. But are teachers willing to share their lesson plans? Is there a place to go to exchange teacher guides, professional teaching books (like on discipline) with other teachers? When I need to find material on a novel, I go to the internet, search the title of the book, and peruse the search page until I find what I need or at least an idea of what I need. Sometimes, though, that takes an incredible amount of hunt and peck time through many different venues--because sometimes the search title covers too broad of an area. First year teachers, even second and third year teachers are building a base of material, lesson plans, and stuff. I know I would like to have a weekend where I can simply enjoy the weekend and not be worrying about sitting at a desk, writing lesson plans, and searching the internet.
