General
How I Use It
I use this to guide and supplement my lesson planning on a regular basis. Sometimes I take full lessons and adapt them to my style or I use the resources to supplement the lesson I created.
My Take
I really like the variety of resources, the ability to review and see reviews of the resources, and that a lot of the lessons come with a video of the teacher who created them explaining the lesson. My problem with the site is that sometimes I get frustrated because I may teach a larger block than the teacher who is providing their lesson so their lesson is broken up into multiple lessons (parts). This wouldn't be an issue if it was easier to find the other parts. Sometimes I'll spend a few minutes just to find part 2 even though I have parts 1 and 3.
