How I Use It
Betterlesson.com is an excellent resource for a collaborative collection of activities and lessons. The site is easy to use and can be searched by Common Core Standards. The areas are broken down into math, ELA, and Next Gen Science by grade levels. as you mine deeper into the resources, each lesson is divided into areas with the actual documents and videos ready for download or play. At times, it has taken longer to find a resource that met my needs, but would often find something that could be used at another time. Some of this is due to the vast amount of materials available.
My Take
Better Lesson is an excellent resource for all levels of teachers. It is organized clearly with sound materials connected to standards. The lessons are complete and broken into steps that can easily be adjusted to various classrooms. One suggestion would be to have a separate bank of rubrics for each of the standards.
