LearnZillion Offers Free Teacher-Created Common Core Lessons

This site is a great source for free Common Core-aligned math and English Language Arts lessons.

In 2011, Eric Westendorf, former principal at E.L. Haynes Public Charter School in Northwest Washington, created LearnZillion, a website where teachers can access free video lessons and practice problems, exchange teaching techniques and compare student progress across classrooms, reports The Washington Post

LearnZillion was created when Westendorf was observing a sixth-grade classroom and watched the teacher explain the division process in a way he had never heard before. Westendorf realized he wanted to share this tactic with other teachers who might be struggling to explain it to their students.

Today, the website is a 28-person tech company near Dupont Circle, where more than 200 teachers are contributing video lessons. Employees include engineers, an academic team of former teachers and a sales and marketing team. About 375,000 users are registered on the site.
