Using Tools for Creating Classroom Activities


SRC*TEC a consortium of southeastern United States with many rural areas offers a web site that is focused on teacher needs.  This site called 4teachers is an excellent source of ideas and tools that allow the teacher to use the Internet more effectively.  At this site are several specific tools that assist in the development of online lessons, quizzes, worksheets, and rubrics.  Not only can the teacher create from their own, they can use the materials that have already been created by others. 

Some of the excellent tools found at 4teachers include:
