When building curriculum, there is always a blind spot that sneaks up on a team, and these websites are effective ways to turn a blind spot into a strength.

Study.com

This online database of instructive videos combines the information of rigorous textbooks with easy-to-follow animations. While the animations might not be eye-popping, and the voiceovers often leave something to be desired, I am always impressed by the quality of information that Study.com offers, as well as the depth of investigation that goes into a topic. This is such a diverse platform of videos that lifelong learners could use this as well as students.

NoRedInk

When it comes to practicing grammar in an engaging and student-centered way, nothing works as well as NoRedInk. This company has figured out the most effective strategies for letting students practice complicated grammatical concepts and show mastery without being discouraged. The levels within the program let students track their growth, and the platform is intuitive. I see immediate, data-proven results when students spend time on NoRedInk (link).

Khan Academy

Khan Academy is so interesting because it is a rigorous series of tutorial videos that became a phenomenon and rocked the status quo for teachers of Science and Math. I have found it influential for the Humanities as well, especially in teaching grammar. I have am also excited to be able to learn more about the Big History movement through its partnership with Khan Academy.
