Lesson Stop ****  
http://www.lessonstop.org/
A bestseller! Therese J. Sarah, the brain behind L.S., has gifted a marvellous site to educators. Her hard work,with results to show, is guaranteed to add flavour to your teaching efforts (you deserve it, for being here)   It may be very worthwhile to start with Planning Lessons, which takes you through topics like Avoid the Pitfalls of Mediocre Lesson Plans, Internet-ize your Lesson Plans ... then onto the major attraction- nearly 500 links,very usefully arranged by topic and grade(K-12), within seven subject areas and thousands of lesson plans.  Another grand (I'm running out of adjectives) feature, is the L.S. Lesson Plans, which includes comprehension, critical thinking questions, and other activities. Also a bonus - a free bi-monthly newsletter (want to be subscriber number 2201?) highlighing several online lesson plans.The beauty of this site is its simplicity - you are in no danger of losing your way on the information highway.

Teacher Talk Home Page ****  
http://education.indiana.edu/cas/tt/tthmpg.html
Calm those Nerves!
A user friendly site for both preservice and secondary education teachers, the highly readable articles range from Icebreakers, to Attention Deficit Disorder, to all they didn't teach you at Training School. Says a preservice teacher,  "for those of us standing on the precipice of preservice teaching, it is a way to connect with professional teachers standing on the distant cliffs of real world education."
Special Education ****  
http://www.specialeducation.org/
A well planned, and searchable site, clearly delineated into sections including Free Expert advice, Homework Help, Special Ed terms, Legal Resources, software, books...  Another very helpful feature of this site are the monthly editions; the May edition, for example, covers the new Braille created by a blind physicist, that deals with numbers much better than the normal Braille; also a new magazine about ADHD and ADD.   All-in-all, an excellent guide to help you help your special students surmount their barriers.
