You can subscribe to our posts by email in the sidebar to get notice whenever we update or add new resources. Each one of our resources has a rating bar at the bottom so educators using these on their own can rate them as well.

HOW REVIEWING WORKS:

  1. We assign resources to reviewers – every resource is reviewed by 2 reviewers to get differing opinions and perspectives.
  2. Reviewers have one month to utilize the resource in their classroom and evaluate them.
  3. We synthesize the reviews and upload the resource onto the website!
