EduHound... Lots of Resources for K12

EduHound ( is a site that has many collections of useful information for educators. I found lesson plans, games, toolkits, research, rubrics, templates, and more. I also found a few deadends, but not many.

A section on differentiated instruction includes planning suggestions, practical tips for the classroom, lesson plans, resources, sample units, learning styles, and explanations on the theory behind it all.

The inventions area has a variety of options including games for students. I did beat the computer at Brain Drain, but I had to work at it!

A communications toolkit is available for those working with Adequate Yearly Progress.

Data-Driven Instruction includes information from CoSN, NCREL, and others.

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Literacy section has maps to help you integrate ICT into the core subjects in addition to rubrics and research that indicates what works.

Lesson plans, an interactive tour, and related materials are available in the immigration area.

Lesson plans and resources from Maine can be found for Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Free templates for PowerPoint are provided.

The section on Project-based Learning includes links, lesson plans, professional development, checklists, and student projects.
