Five Friday Finds

As usual, finding good web resources can be the hardest part of the job for an educator.  With all the demands on a teacher's time, who has time to spend searching?  If this is you, here are some resources you may found useful.  Please feel free to share with others!

General
Cirriki
“Curriki is an online environment created to support the development and free distribution of world-class educational materials to anyone who needs them. Our name is a play on the combination of 'curriculum' and 'wiki' which is the technology we're using to make education universally accessible.”

Language
Common Core Curriculum Maps
“[A] coherent sequence of thematic curriculum units, roughly six per grade level, K–12. The unit maps connect the skills outlined in the CCSS in ELA with suggested works of literature and informational texts and provide activities teachers could use in their classrooms.”

Math
Touch Trigonometry
“Touch Trigonometry is a simple Flash gizmo…that hopes to help math learners of all ages get an intuitive understanding of trigonometry. It aims to do that by letting you just play with the trig functions, with no buttons to get in the way.” Uses simple mouse-over movement on the unit circle.


Science
Digital Library for Earth System Education
“DLESE supports Earth system science education by providing: access to high-quality collections of educational resources, access to Earth data sets and imagery including the tools and interfaces that enable their effective use in educational settings, support services to help educators and learners effectively create, use, and share educational resources, communication networks to facilitate interactions and collaborations across all dimensions of Earth system education”
