WHO: Teachers looks for additional resources in their classrooms.
HOW: This service could not be any easier! Teachers can get resources without signing up for an account. Simply open your web browser, go to https://www.oercommons.org, type your topic into the search bar, choose subject/grade level/standards (optional), and have resources, lesson plans, activities and more instantly! Accounts are free, so I highly recommend signing up for one.
WHEN: This website is a phenomenal resource while planning your upcoming lessons. In addition to your textbook (if you use one), you will find a wide variety of digital resources here.
OER Commons has put together an astonishing network of links to so many different topics. I have shared this website with a few of the teachers I work with, and they immediately bookmarked it to use in their classroom. The dropdown menu for grade level includes everything from preschool to adult education.
