BrainPop you have to be a member to use, but if you can get your district to subscribe it is a great resource!
Math Forum has a great "math help" tab and links to Ask Dr. Math, Internet Math Library, and Teacher to Teacher help.

Brainpop Jr.

Brainpop Jr. is a fantastic learning website. It has short videos that relate to all disciplines including important holidays, math concepts, and science concepts. There is a fee to subscribe but it is worth every penny. I use the site frequently to supplement my lessons.

We are studying Laura Numeroff in reading right now. I found read alouds of 3 of her books on YouTube that include pages being turned as well as narration of the stories.

Science (Middle and High School)
This is an educational website that discusses how to work with podcasts in the classrooms and recommends them for grades 5-12. I have always wanted my students to create one.

Science (Middle and High School)
This is a website known as "Practical Uses for Math and Science" that has 73 different ideas of how to use math and science to work with Problem Based Learning.

Create a Graph
This was not on the list. It is a great resource for College Instructors.

This will be a great site for my Graphics unit. I can demonstrate with it or assign it for a project.

MS Nursing Review on Cancer Part 1

[[http://cmap.ihmc.us/Documentation |Concepts Maps]]
Short, succinct YouTube presentations on different nursing topics to be used as a mini NCLEX review. I choose Cancer 1 to place here but you could find a short presentation on Cancer Part 2, Angina, Cirrhosis of the Liver, Pneumonia, Diabetes Mellitus, and Parkinson's to name a few of the diseases. There is music playing during the presentation that is a bit distracting.

The CmapTools documentation is organized as a Knowledge Model composed of concept maps and associated resources, constructed with CmapTools itself. Site provides a categorized list of the Cmaps in the Knowledge Model, for direct access. Interesting feature is that students can work synchronously.

Great site with a wide variety of language arts lesson plans. I like that the main character of the site is a girl. This will encourage and engage my female students which will help hold their interest.

Very good site full of math lessons that meet the standards I am challenged to teach my students each day. What I really like is that many of the lessons come with links for my SmartBoard application. Highly interactive and the lesson is already prepared.

10 modules on various aspects of the older adult- dementia, palliative care, etc. developed by University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine & Nursing. Instructor and student resources- power points, videos.

I use this website to search for any nursing topics. I think it is better than teacher tube for this college level and specialty. I was not able to find much on teacher tube for nursing.

How to create podcasts for the classroom, would be a great idea for a nursing group project on a specific content area, then maybe could post on utube for others to use.
Health Occupations
This is very similar to the overview of the human body systems that I give in my health occ course. There is no science pre-req to get into this course so kids come from "all over"
Health Occupations
This is a great lesson plan from PBS teachers for my Alzheimer's and related dementia unit.
Playing Cluedo
This is a cool game that teaches directions, listening skills, sequencing, interviewing, questioning, etc. It would be an excellent game to try with my shy, special ed students in their ELA class.
Life Skills
Interview Assessment Criteria
The site provides life skill activities in the form of an interview check list and rubric for practice interviewing. This is something I've been meaning to put together.
