Check out these great websites, which help spark ideas as well as provide active feedback from practicing educators. They can help pre-service teachers consider classroom management,learn from others’ first-hand experiences, and consider how to work with the standards by strengthening communications with their local teaching communities. Another important thing these resources provide are many ideas on lesson planning that will help pre-service teachers not only to consider the art skills that they already have, but to also think outside the box to help keep their students engaged and motivated.
