What I Use in My Classroom

Experienced educators in the Core Advocate network share some of their favorite free resources to help take the guesswork out of selecting and using free materials. The list is organized into six sections: ELA, math, social studies, science, digital tools, and professional development. In their own words, teachers describe each resource, how they’ve used it themselves, and any potential concerns that other educators should be aware of when using the resource.
