Teacher Linx - Create and Share Lesson Plans

There are many, many places on the Internet where you can find lesson plans and other resources for classroom use (you're at one of those places now). Even the most prolific bloggers can't reproduce the volume of content that a crowd can produce. Just take a look at Classroom 2.0 for proof of that. Teacher Linx is a newer website that is trying to harness the power of a networked crowd to generate useful content for teachers.

Teacher Linx is a place where teachers can create lesson plans and share lesson plans with each other. Teacher Linx provides a platform on which teachers can find lesson plans for a variety of content areas and grade levels. To encourage teachers to share their lesson plans, Teacher Linx will reward teachers with a $15 Starbucks Card for every 30 lesson plans they upload.

Applications for Education
I browsed through the lesson plans on Teacher Linx and, as you might expect, they varied in depth and quality. If you're willing to spend some time searching and browsing, you should find some that are relevant to your curriculum.
