As a literacy coach, I have referred all my teachers to this site to find excellent ideas to use in their classroom. It is easily navigated and the ideas are from teachers teaching the curriculum not a publisher. It is also a place where teachers may share the lessons they have developed to use to support the OCR curriculum. This means the site continues to grow and change on a regular basis to support teachers.

I am a teacher currently teaching technology in grades K-4. I began this site about eight years ago as a collection of about 25 sites that I used with my students. It has expanded over time to a directory of approximately 8,000 sites, arranged according to topic. The site is designed for use by children and there is an additional page of links for parents and teachers. It is updated frequently and links are checked monthly.

John Scopes was arrested in Tennessee in 1925 for teaching evolution in defiance of state law. His trial became an all-out duel between science and religion, and one of the epic legal battles of the twentieth century.

ZOOM is PBS’s award-winning daily interactive television series and 3,000 page web site. The site challenges five to eleven-year-olds to “turn off the TV and do it”. Behind each entertaining half-hour episode is a curriculum developed by leading educators and advisors.
