Useful teaching resources



The web has a huge range of really useful teaching resources which can aid both teachers and trainees a like in preparing their lessons and developing as a teacher. As a trainee teacher however you might not know where to find all the great things out there. Doing an online search can lead to hundreds of thousands of results, making it difficult to sort out the best resources from the long list.

So here we have a list of useful teaching links submitted by teachers and trainee teachers. Please fell free to add to the list if you make use of a website or online resource that we don't link to here. We'd also like little reviews of each site on here saying what you can expect to find at each link and how good/useful it is.

Thanks need to be given to santogold for originally creating this list on the forums.
