The Teacher’s Corner is both fun and easy to access. Created in 1998, it has clearly been an indispensable source of ideas and knowledge to educators with its rich contents. Although it caters primarily to primary to intermediate grades, teachers teaching higher grades would find some useful resources and ideas for use in their lessons.
Some key features of this site are:
- Lesson Plans (with printable worksheets);
- Teacher Resources;
- The Teacher’s Lounge;
- Book Nook (which contains a list of suggested reading books for children);
- Experiment of the Week (a definite boon for all science teachers); and
- Lesson Plan Submission.
The site is very user-friendly as each link directs us to a whole plethora of others to suit our needs and fancies. There are activity-based and programme-based contents which would suit most classroom and teaching environments. On top of it all, the exchange of ideas and resources by educators is very active and engaging.
The wealth of knowledge that the website holds is well organized such that teachers would have minimum problems locating what they want. Albeit the lack of animations or graphics on the website per se (it has clear blue fonts and a nice tint of cream as a background though), The Teacher’s Corner makes up for that with its contents. The conversational style of writing makes it easy for both educators and students. This winning website clearly makes learning fun for everyone!
