When I was preparing for some grade level meetings for the next two days I was looking for a specific web resource and I was reminded that not all teachers know about a great on-line resource called the Ohio Resource Center (ORC). Even if you are not from Ohio, this on-line data bank is very useful, as many state standards are similar. I pasted their general information below. Anyone can surf, but you can also set up a free account and bookmark the web resources that you like so you don’t have to go looking for them later.
Ohio has a wonderful ORC provides links to peer-reviewed instructional resources that have been identified by a panel of Ohio educators as exemplifying best or promising practice. Available resources also include content and professional resources as well as assessment and general education resources that will support the work of preK–12 classroom teachers and higher education faculty members. The resources are correlated with Ohio’s academic content standards and with applicable national content standards.
One resource ORC has listed that I really like is a ReadWriteThink lesson http://readwritethink.org/lessons/lesson_view.asp?id=786 which is a lesson on peer editing. Check is out!
