The Internet4Classrooms website by  Susan Brooks and Bill Byles is one of the most comprehensive Education Portals on the web. 

At the Internet for Classrooms site you'll find:

Thinkfinity

Thinkfinity is an excellent site that will sort through hundreds of valuable resources to find lesson plans as well as resources for guided, and independent practice. A search for resources to teach biographical writing produced an excellent student resource that supports student understanding of summarizing, main idea, and more:  Bio-CubeYou can refine any search by grade level, standards, subject, Thinkfinity Partners or resources (audio, interactivities, lesson plans, primary sources, videos, or worksheets.) 

ReadWriteThink

bullet

 ReadWriteThink, sponsored by the International Reading                 Association and the National Council of Teachers of English is an
excellent site with resources organized by grade level, resource type, learning objective, or theme.  If you search through their interactive resources for students, each is linked to multiple lessons to introduce the concept needed before students practice skills.

Teacher Created Resources

 
Jessica Poggemoeller created a  great document to help k-2 teachers form learning strategy groups and then select the best learning concepts from DesCartes to guide their mini-lessons. We've adapted the charts and added Language Usage for Elementary and Middle School teachers.
