Stop reinventing the wheel!
The Colorado BOCES and eNetLearning have created a way for Colorado educators to access thousands of standards aligned units, lessons, assessments and resources and use them today! This project builds on the over 600 Colorado Curriculum Overview Samples and Instructional Units authored by Colorado teachers through CDE’s Content Collaboratives project. BOCES and school districts collaborated and developed enhanced standards aligned units, lessons, resources and assessments that support these samples. The resources are available to teachers and district leaders statewide.
The shared resources from participating districts and BOCES can be accessed on the Colorado Professional Network (PLN) site by using the PLN Resource Finder supported by eNetLearning and the Colorado BOCES. Search for resources from projects with the San Luis Valley, South Central, Rio Blanco, East Central, and Pikes Peak BOCES plus a number of other districts and initiatives, including the CDE Assessment Resources. View all of the districts and groups participating in the Colorado PLN at: http://coloradoplc.org/groups. Districts and BOCES that want to join this effort or need a site to link to and house resources can join the PLN and have their own “group” at no cost.
Collections of resources and support materials for the Sample Curriculum Overviews and Instructional Sample Units are linked in a series of LiveBinder collections supported by eNetLearning and the Colorado BOCES. Direct links to all of the resources being developed and shared through the CDE Content Collaborative project are provided in one location. You will find additional links to resources for all math and science content. Read Write Communicate and Social Studies resource links will be completed in the coming months.
LiveBinder is a no-cost open source website that allows educators to directly access collections without needing to sign-in. Teachers and district leaders can access these collections/resources at www.tinyurl.com/enetbinders. Livebinder will also allow users to copy any of these collections so they can be modified and changed based on district and teacher needs and priorities.
