Library of Congress
The resource I think is the most beneficial and would use in my classroom is called the Library of Congress. When I first found the website I was unsure what exactly the purpose was. As I looked more into it, I realized I had access to the actual library. Wanting to find information that pertained to the age group I plan to teach, kindergarten, I clicked on a link leading me to information that related to my state's standards. From there I chose my preferred age group and subject, language arts, and was shocked to find a complete detailed list of all topics the PA standards recommended. The website provides lesson plans, presentations, and detailed guides with pictures. I was able to find this information about anything from Abraham Lincoln to the origins of American animation. I feel like this would be extremely beneficial in my classroom. If I was struggling to come up with ideas, this would be the perfect tool to use. There's even an opportunity to ask the librarian questions. I could get advice, or tips on creating my lesson plans. I believe this to be a great tool to have at my finger tips.
