Some Teacher-made Resources on the Web

Quia is a website that allows you to access teacher-created quizzes and learning games in more than a hundred subject areas. You can track scores and student progress and create and publish your own quizzes, too. The site offers a 30-day free trial, after which you can subscribe for $49 a year. This is a great resource for visual and interactive learning. Quizzes can take the form of Jeopardy (called Challenge Board), Who Wants to be a Millionaire (called Rags to Riches), Hangman, Matching, Battleship, Concentration, word searches and more.

Also, according to Yahoo News, Teachers Are Selling Study Guides Online.

"For all those teachers who take work home at night, creating lessons they hope kids will like, the reward is a good day in class. Now there could be another payoff: cash. Teachers are selling their original lectures, course outlines and study guides to other teachers through a new Web site launched by New York entrepreneur Paul Edelman.

The site,, aims to be an eBay for educators. For a $29.95 yearly fee, sellers can post their work and set their prices. Buyers rate the products." Click the link above for the rest of the article.
