This website was started in 2012 as an extension of a site started in 2004, Resources for Idaho Teachers (www.foridahoteachers.org). I wanted a way to share some great ideas and resources from teachers I knew, particularly related to the state assessment and standards.
The Common Core standards brought about a more national discussion around assessments and standards and gave us some common language that made it easier to share resources with teachers all over the country. As state and national expectations continue to shift, I want to focus on those in education who have the biggest impact on students: the teachers. By highlighting best practices and lesson ideas that I hope spark new and even more effective, innovative ideas.
Your feedback and any ideas you are willing to share are much appreciated. Are there particular resources or lesson topics you like to see?
Suggestions? Questions? Comments? We’d love to hear from you!
