Learning to Share: Teachers Collaborate on Quality Lesson Plans

Check out an excerpt of the AFL-CIO's new Innovators website feature, "Learning to Share: Teachers Collaborate on Quality Lesson Plans."

Think about facing a classroom of kids every day and being expected to walk in the door with something new, fresh, compelling and challenging.

Creating the massive volume of quality instructional material required is among a veteran teacher’s greatest challenges. Needed resources are often hard to come by, expensive and it can be difficult to evaluate their effectiveness.  So a group of teachers attempted to solve these problems by creating a valuable new online resource where educators can share their best lesson plans, Share My Lesson.

Share My Lesson is free and pledges to remain that way forever.  It was developed by teachers so they could "collaborate with, encourage and inspire each other" online. At the end of November 2012, the site, a joint project of the AFT andTES, the world's largest online network of teachers, with more than 2 million registered users in 197 countries, contained more than one-quarter of a million teaching materials.
