This lesson plan wiki is for teachers who want to share their lessons with others. There are lesson plans for preschool up to high school. You are able to search by grade and by subject. You can also post your favorite lesson plans.

http://wiki-teacher.com/
This wiki has lessons and units for teacher to share and contribute to. It also has videos that show demonstrations in most subject areas. This wiki also shows you how to unwrapp standard in English Language Arts and Math.

This wiki is for teachers that are using a Smart board. You do need to have Smart Notebook 10 software to open these files, but they are pretty neat. They are interactive activates that you can was with a smart board that are from the Scott Forsman reading series for k-5th grade.


Alex Helm...
Although it's hard to exactly figure out what is going on with the wiki, I like the intent; and there are lesson plans here, but they are in discussions, not pages as far as I could tell.

Welcome to the Social Technology in Education Lesson Plan Wiki!...a place where teachers can share lesson plans integrating social tech into teaching and learning
What It's About
• This is a place for tech savvy teachers to share social tech integrated lessons.
• You are welcome to share text, photos, audio, and video; the most important thing is that the lessons help other teachers think about ways to integrate social technology into their classes.

Who's Making This Wiki?
• You!
• This wiki was started by Shelly Blake-Plock, daily blogger at TeachPaperless.com and is open for collaborative creation by anyone involved in the practice of integrating social technology into the learning experience.

I went looking for a wiki that addressed the theme I was working on with my wiki. Maybe I didn't look hard enough, but I was sort of surprised I didn't find alot more on emotional intelligence and education. I was looking for a lesson plan when I stumbled on this site. Again, I really like the intent of this wiki; I believe this is an important aspect of teaching and learning whether F2F or on-line.

Emotional Wellbeing in Education Service
West Dunbartonshire's EWES, is composed of a group of educational practitioners from Early Years, Primary and Secondary sectors.
The purpose of the group is:
To promote an understanding of emotional literacy in our own lives with a view to informing our professional practice with all stakeholders. The group seeks to support the development of emotional literacy by providing training opportunities and personal/professional development opportunities with the ultimate aim of building emotionally literate relationships, classrooms and institutions.


Well, I did a little searching, and I found this very lovely wiki. I knew I was going to like it because it won the Best Educational Wiki for 2010. I really like it because it's done by such young children. If you check this out, make sure you wait for the music--and try not to cry when you look at some of the posts.

Another wiki I found had a video that I watched the other night: "Wikis in Plain English." The site itself is so deep in its structure that it would take me days to go through it. I'm going to make it one of my favorites, though, so I can come back and learn more about wikis.

Joanne's Wiki Lesson Plan sites:
I had some difficulty finding college level material. Here are two 12th grade resources I still like:

1. Environmental Science Interactions Wiki (Canada)
http://environmentalscienceinteractions.wikispaces.com/ This site is specific to a course, but offers lots of resources for others. It holds instructor notebooks and invites sharing and collaboration and chapters for the textbook for SVN3E (probably a course abbreviation) The site includes instructions for using wikis. Here is a link to the pdf for Chapter 1, We are Earth’s Guardians http://environmentalscienceinteractions.wikispaces.com/file/view/ES_Chp1_EdInteractive.pdf

2. The Impact of Climate Change (US)__
Even though targeting primary age students, I think most college students could benefit from the activity here. It involves group work and web page development.

Sukey Waldenberger

The "VicWik" is often used as an example of how wikis fit into the idea of "the Digital Humanities." It is a collection of undergraduate research projects on Victorian literature. What I find really interesting about this collection is that it is a multi-year project with students continually adding the the collected information that is then passed on to the next year's students.

This second link isn't a wiki of lesson plans, nor a lesson play that incorporates wikis. It also deals with Wikipedia, so a rule-breaker all around. But it is the best explanation I've seen of how Wikipedia works AS a wiki, something I cover in my Pop Culture/Critical Thinking class, so I'm including it because I really like it. It's a screen cast of an explanation on how the Wikipedia article on the use of umlauts in heavy-metal band names changed over time. http://jonudell.net/udell/gems/umlaut/umlaut.html

And here is my wiki, if we are also supposed to post the link here. I'm getting confused about what goes in which format. http://nauhum205.wikispaces.com/

Three Wikis for Math
http://apcalculusnmsi.wikispaces.com
This Wiki is organized by topics that are taught in the AP Calculus courses at the high school. The curriculum mirrors what is done in our Calculus I and Calculus II courses at the college level. It seems that the administrator has posted many of the items including PDF documents and videos. I see that I could use these in both my online and face-to-face courses. In my online, it is difficult to come up with items that students can access that will be helpful. This Wiki looks like a promising resource.

https://eee.uci.edu/wiki/index.php/Geogebra_Resources_(papers,_tutorials,_applets,_lesson_plans,_...)
This Wiki contains a wealth of information and activities centered about a program called “Geogebra” which is a dynamic software that works through applets that have “sliders” which allow the student to manipulate parameters and see instant results. I envision this would be a great resource for the Mathematics for Elementary School II course. In the past, we have used similar software called “Geometry Supposer”. However, this software was expensive, and we ceased using it. These applets are free which make them a great tool for use in course and other teacher training situations.

http://www.terapdf.com/lesson-plans-a-math.pdf
This is a list of lesson plans in a variety of subjects and levels. It is not organized and easy to get through though. However, I did find an interesting lesson plan within it at: http://plato.acadiau.ca/courses/educ/reid/4173/Elem-Lesson-Plans/TaraWhite_LessonPlan.doc
This lesson would be great in the elementary teacher trainings that I am currently involved with.
