"When you really get inside teachers' practice, you can see how complex and complicated everyday teaching is."  -Ann Lieberman.

At the heart of Inside Teaching is the challenge to capture the wisdom of practice. Here K-12 teachers and teacher educators document their practice, reflect on their teaching and build on each other's work. On their multimedia records of teaching practice, you can find videos of teaching, examples of lesson plans, practitioner reflections and narratives, images of student work, and many other documents of teaching and learning.

You can search these individual websites by grade level, subject area and by name.
