  3. My 10 Greatest "Ah-ha" Moments in working with the Corecomm - a white paper by Sarah Brown Wessling, 2010 Teacher of the (GL) Today before school, I was on my Twitter account. I follow several individuals Professionally involved in Education, and I saw a link to "the 60 best sites for teachers." ( http://www.freetech4teachers.com/2012/11/60-of-best-websites-and-apps-for.html#.ULi6TIfhqrh ).
  4. Looking at this slideshow, I found the website www.commoncurriculum.com which is a lesson planning website that allows you the opportunity to provide yourselves and your students a layout of your weekly lesson plan. The best part is, that you can actually look up the common core standards you are using for the day to ensure you are staying on track. It also allows you to set up specific websites for your individual classes. I really wish I had known about this before I student taught, because its very cool. I even got an instant message from one of the developers asking for opinions. I talked to him for about 20 minutes haha. Its pretty neat and extremely resourceful. I highly recommend you take a look at it, seeing as the Common Core is new to all of us.
