Finding Resources Online - A Secondary Blog Hop!

It is often difficult to find just the right lesson for the Secondary classroom.  Many of us are set in our own ways, and it makes it hard for us to accept second rate lessons or to fall back on age-old textbook resources for those lessons we just can't take the time to create for ourselves.  Thank goodness for TeachersPayTeachers.  Through this online marketplace, teachers can now find quality lessons they can feel confident about using in their classroom with their students!


This week we Secondary teachers are holding a Blog Hop to help you meet some of the teachers who are working hard to develop quality lessons on TpT.  Start at any point on the Hop, and find your way through the Secondary World!  Bookmark the blogs you enjoy, and be sure to visit them again for great advice, new ideas, and of course, awesome resources!  And, of course, make sure to leave comments and follow the blogs to be entered to win our great prizes!

About me:  My blog is all about teachers!  It is based on the ideas presented in my book, A Lesson Plan for Teachers, and I attack topics I feel need to be addressed for new or struggling teachers in all grade levels.  In addition, I am constantly posting new items, free and priced, to help teachers stock up their classrooms with the most up-to-date and exciting lessons they can find for the ELA and Social Studies classroom!

In my TpT Store, you will find everything from resources to help you get started as a teacher to ELA materials for the secondary grades to a whole treasure trove of Social Studies lessons and activities!
