Student Lessons and Ebooks at the Beacon Learning Center
I'm always looking for ways to bring accessibility into the classroom. Sometimes that means finding sites that teachers can use, maybe with some modification, to assist their students.
Beacon Learning Center has some great Student Web Lessons and Online Books (a number with audio) that would be accessible to English Language Learners. They cover English, Science, Social Studies and Math.
Beacon Learning Center is an online educational resource and professional development center currently funded through a Technology Innovation Challenge Grant from the US Department of Education. The resources posted in the Beacon database are products of professional development activities teaching a standards-based planning model.
The mission of Beacon Learning Center is to provide educators throughout the nation with standards-based resources and professional development, thus enabling them to identify, design, and implement quality education.
High quality teachers use standards-based practice as the foundation for all they do. Beacon's focus on the alignment of curriculum, assessment, and instructional
activities support the development of sound educational practice.
